Tigers Take Two Against Athletics

August 27, 1935 Tigers 6, Athletics 5 (77-43)

The Tigers edged the Athletics in the first game of their doubleheader. It was the Tigers third doubleheader in seven days. The Tigers drew nine walks, two of which drove in runs in the third inning. More importantly, with the game tied at 5-5, Pete Fox doubled in the bottom of the ninth, and eventually crossed the plate after three straight walks to end the game.

Pete Fox was two for three with three runs and Hank Greenberg had two hits and an RBI. Starter Vic Sorrell was knocked around for twelve hits, but he did just enough to walk away with the win.

August 27, 1935 Tigers 5, Athletics 0 (78-43)

Schoolboy Rowe made a run at history by striking out twelve Athletics in nine innings of five hit ball. The previous record of thirteen was held by Philadelphia’s Sugar Cain. Regardless, Rowe earned his sixteenth win of the season.

Charlie Gehringer had two hits and two runs while Hank Greenberg had two hits and an RBI. The two wins gave the Tigers a nine and a half game lead over the Yankees in the American League.
