Tigers Top Senators Twice

June 22, 1935 Tigers 7, Senators 0 (31-26)

For the third time in eight days, the Tigers were forced to play doubleheaders. It was either feast or famine as they took both games in two of those doubleheaders, and lost two when they played the Yankees earlier in the week.

General Crowder threw one of his best games to date as he held the Senators to five hits and he didn’t let a single player cross the plate. Gee Walker had a big game as he went three for four and was a homerun short of hitting for the cycle. Hank Greenberg continued to contribute as he went two for three with twp RBIs. And Hall of Famer Goose Goslin had three hits of his. He scored a run and drove in one.

June 22, 1935 Tigers 10, Senators 9 (32-26)

The Tigers jumped out to a 7-0 lead in this game and almost let it slip away. The Senators came all the way back and made it 10-9 ballgame by scoring two runs in the ninth, but they came up just a bit short and Elden Auker walked away with a tough win despite giving up 10 hits through six innings of work.

Hank Greenberg, who’s name shows up in these entries just about every day (proving why he was the league MVP) hit yet another homerun for the Tigers. His three run shot was part of a big six run run second inning. Gee Walker also went yard and he drove in three runs. Charlie Gehringer had two hits and he drove in two runs.

With three consecutive wins, the Tigers moved into a tie with the White Sox. They trailed the second place Indians by a single game, and the first place Yankees by five.
