Tigers Take Two Against Indians, Win Seventh Straight

July 4, 1935 Tigers 6, Indians 5 (42-29)

Doubleheaders are rough on a team. Doubleheaders where the first game goes into extra frames is even tougher, and that’s exactly what happened to the Tigers on Independence Day. After trailing 5-4, the Tigers scored a run in the top of the ninth to tie it, and they scored a run in the eleventh to win their sixth straight.

Mickey Cochrane went four for five with a homer and three runs scored while Goose Goslin went two for six with a couple of RBIs. Billy Rogell also had two hits.

General Crowder started the game and went 5 1/3 as he gave up the five runs. Elden Auker, Chief Hogsett and Tommy Bridges then combined to hold the Indians scoreless over the final five innings of the game. Hogsett walked away with the win while Tommy Bridges earned his first and only save of the season.

Not even a doubleheader could slow down the Tigers bats as they won their seventh straight game. The Tigers ran up the score with ten runs on sixteen hits.

Goose Goslin was the MVP of the doubleheader as he had another great game. He went three for five with three RBis. Charlie Gehringer homered and relief pitcher Hogsett even contributed with a two run homer.

Schoolboy Rowe walked away with another win although the boxscore I have shows him only throwing 3 1/3 innings.
