Tigers Split Doubleheader, Schoolboy Rowe Named World Series Game One Starter

September 28, 1935 White Sox 6, Tigers 3 (92-56)

Tommy Bridges was cruising along with a shutout through five innings, but the White Sox tagged him for two runs in the sixth, then four in the eighth as the White Sox beat the Tigers in the front end of their doubleheader. Bridges struck out three and gave up only seven hits, but the White Sox made them count.

Charlie Gehringer, Pete Fox and Marv Owen all had two hits in the game. The Tigers had three errors in the game, but were actually outpaced in that department by the White Sox, who had four.

Schoolboy Rowe threw a nice game and the Tigers’ bats ran up the score in the second game of the doubleheader. Prior to the first game, manager Mickey Cochrane said that whoever threw better between Bridges and Rowe in the doubleheader would get the nod in game one of the World Series.

The Tigers ran up the score and by the top of the fourth inning, they had a 6-0 lead. Charlie Gehringer had a huge day, going three for five with a homerun, two runs and three RBIs. Pete Fox also hit the ball as he went two for four with a homer, three runs and an RBI.
