April 27, 1935 Indians 9, Tigers 2 (2-9)
I’m not sure if this is the worst record by an eventual World Series Champion or not, but it has to be right down there. Tommy Bridges couldn’t even make it out of the first inning as the Indians scored five runs . They added a run in the second and three in the seventh, but the game was sealed up pretty quickly.
The Tigers managed 11 hits, but only two runs crossed the plate. Four different Tigers had two hits.
