Tigers Sweep White Sox Behind Strong Pitching by Rowe and Auker

September 2, 1935 Tigers 6, White Sox 1 (82-44)\

The Tigers continued there winning ways in the morning half of their doubleheader with the White Sox. Schoolboy Rowe held the White Sox to one run on five hits and he even helped out his own cause by driving in two runs with the only homerun of the game.

While the Tigers only managed six hits, they were patient at the plate and drew five walks. Jo Jo White and Billy Rogell scored two runs.

Elden Auker threw a seven hit shutout as the Tigers took both games against the White Sox. Pete Fox had the big hit when he drove in three with a homerun in the seventh inning.

31,000 fans showed up for the morning game and 37,000 attended the afternoon game as the Tigers came even closer to clinching their second straight American League pennant. They’d get a short four day break as most of the league was rained out in early September.
