Senators 4 – Tigers 0, at Navin Field
Twenty-three men named Heinie have played in the majors, the last in 1944. Two of them appeared in this game: future Hall of Famer (and former Tiger) Heinie Manush for the Senators and Heinie Schuble for the Tigers.
Time of game: 1 hour 35 minutes. I can’t even imagine.

P.S. The 2012 club was 20-21 after the win. The same record the Tigers will have if they beat the Rays tonight.
Dontrelle Willis wins his first game in 20 months and his first in a Tigers uniform as the Tigers shut out the Rangers, 4-0.
The D-Train allowed only one hit — a double to Michael Young — in six and a third innings, and retired 17 batters in a row at one point and snapped the Rangers’ seven-game winning streak.
