Chicago Sweeps Detroit In Battle of Cellar Dwellars

May 2: Chicago 4, Detroit 2

The owners of the two worst records in the Original Division met on Chicago’s south side, but only one team seemed to show up. Detroit couldn’t muster more than three runs in any game, and got one mediocre start and two disasters from their rotation. Game one was as good as it got for Detroit, with George Uhle hurling a complete eight inning game and allowed four despite Chicago only reaching base five times. A Robin Ventura double, Eddie Collins single, and Frank Thomas homer bunched up in the sixth inning. Chris Sale was excellent for the Sox.

Justin Verlander made his shortest appearance of the season. Minnie Minoso, Thomas, and Jackson went back-to-back-to-back homerin’ in the first. Ed Walsh made his best start since opening day when he threw a similar three run complete game. The Big Hurt went yard again and doubled in a 4-for-5 day.

Hal Newhouser made the next miserable start for the Tigers, exiting the game in the second inning after giving up six. Joe Jackson went 4-for-5 with a triple, his league-leading fifth of the year. Red Faber finally threw an excellent game after a rough first five starts. Detroit found themselves all alone in last at series’ end.
