Tigers Top Tribe in Thirteen

April 21, 1935 Tigers 3, Indians 2 (2-3)

The Tiger’s bats continued to struggle, but some top notch pitching kept the Tigers in this game and allowed them to pull it out. The Indians jumped out to a 2-0 with a run in the third and a run in the sixth off of starter Carl Fischer.

The Tigers answered in the bottom half of the sixth when Mickey Cochrane and Billy Rogell drove in a run a piece with singles. Schoolboy Rowe relieved Fischer in the seventh and slammed the door shut by pitching seven shutout innings.

The Tigers won the game in the bottom of the thirteenth when Gehringer doubled. He moved over to third on two intentional walks, and then third baseman Marv Owen drove him in on an infield groundout.

Schoolboy earned his first win of the season, and the Indian’s set a record by playing in 41 innings over the course of three games. The previous record was set by the Washingon Senators in 1915.
