Schoolboy Rowe was hit hard after getting only one days rest between starts. The Yankees tagged him for three runs in the first and three in the third before Mickey Cochrane went to his pen.
The Tigers tried to stage a comeback but just fell short. Hank Greenberg drove in two with his 32nd homer of the season to start off a four run rally in the sixth, but in the end, they’d fall a run short.
