Tommy Bridges pitched a gem to earn the win. He really picked up the hitters, who managed only two runs on seven hits. Bridges shutout the Browns on only three hits. While he gave up three walks, he did strike out five. Hank Greenberg drove in both of the Tiger’s runs, while Jo Jo White scored them both.
A huge crowd came out to see the defending American League champs play as 38,000 showed up at Navins Field. The crowd overflowed onto the field, forcing the umpires to institute ground rules. To make matters worse, more then 10,000 fans didn’t even get into the ball park, and several fans were given their money back because they couldn’t see the action with such a large crowd.
