Tigers History Lesson

On this Date in Tigers History

  • 1967 — Cleveland’s Luis Tiant beats the Red Sox 6-3 despite Carl Yastrzemski 43rd home run of the season. The Twins top the Angels 7-3 behind two monster home runs by Harmon Killebrew, his 42nd and 43rd of the season. Mickey Lolich blanks the Yanks, 1-0, for Detroit to tighten the pennant race. The Twins (91-68) lead with Chicago (89-68) and the idle Red Sox (90-69) a game back, and Detroit (89-69) a half-game back.

  • 1971 — How times change for Denny McLain, now with the Senators. He loses his 22nd game of the season,
    dropping a 6-3 decision to the Red Sox.

  • 1926 — In his final day in a Tigers uniform, Ty Cobb watches his replacement in centerfield gets six hits in a twin bill with the Red Sox to become the new batting champs as Heinie Manush edges Babe Ruth .378 to .372 for the title.
