Tigers Trounce Indians, Now Lead Yankees by 1 1/2 Games

July 26, 1975 Tigers 8, Indians 2 (55-35)

This game started out as a pitching dual between starters Elden Auker and Thornton Lee as the score was only 2-1 after five innings. In the sixth and seventh, the Tigers opened the game up with five runs to walk away with the win.

Hank Greenberg continued to mash the ball. He went three for five with three RBIs. Pete Fox drove in two runs and Goose Goslin scored twice. Auker went the distance, and despite giving up ten hits he only allowed two of those to cross the plate.

The win put the Tigers a game and a half up on the Yankees and for the first time were twenty games above .500.
