Tigers History Lesson
On this Date in Tigers History
- 2000 — The Tigers outlast the Red Sox, 7-6. The two teams combine to use a league record-tying 42 players in the contest.
- 1969 — Denny McLain records his ninth shutout, a Tigers record, beating New York, 2-0 at Yankee Stadium.
- 1901 — The Tigers steamroll the Cleveland Blues behind Ed Siever with the most lopsided score in American League history: 21-0 (equaled on August 13, 1939). Detroit pounds out 24 hits off rookie Jack Bracken as Pop Dillon leads the way with four hits. The game is mercifully called after 7-1/2 innings to allow Cleveland to catch a train. Bracken’s ERA is not helped by this outing and he will end this season, his only one in the majors, with a 6.21 mark, the highest in the deadball era.
