The Yankees struck first in this game with a single run in the opening inning off of starter Roxie Lawson. The Tigers didn’t wait too long to take the lead though, as they rattled off four runs in the second and never looked back.
Jo Jo White went two for four with a triple and two RBIs and Charlie Gehringer had two hits and a run. Roxie Lawson went the distance and gave up only the one run on nine hits, while striking out three.
With fourteen games remaining the Tigers had a 9 1/2 game lead. Their second straight American League pennant appeared pretty much locked up.
