Tigers Top Athletics in Eleven

May 20, 1935 Tiger 8, Athletics 6 (14-13)

Tommy Bridges scrapped his way through eleven innings of work to bring home the win. In a line you won’t see these days, Bridges gave up six runs on fifteen hits and had five strikeouts. With the Tigers up 5-3 in the ninth, the Athletics scored two to put the game into extra frames, only to have the Tigers put three runs up in the eleventh to win it in Philly.

Centerfielder Pete Fox and Hank Greenberg both hit homeruns and doubles for the Tigers. Fox drove in two runs while Greenberg scored twice.

The win gave the Tigers a winning record for the first time in the season. From here on out, they’d never dip back below .500 as they pursued their first World Series Championship.
