May 25, 1968 at the Oakland Coliseum
Tigers 2, Athletics 1Â (24-14)
Denny McLain got the Tigers back on track with another nice start as the Tigers ended their three game losing streak.Â McLain gave up just a single run (in the ninth inning) on six hits and a walk with eight strikeouts and the win pushed his record to an impressive 7-1.
The Tigers managed just six hits of their own but it was enough to get the job done.Â McLain singled and he scored one of the two runs while Mickey Stanley made his lone at bat count in spades with an RBI single that put the Tigers on the board in the eighth inning.
The Tigers were dealt a blog though.Â Al Kaline was hit in the forearm by a pitch that would put him on the disabled list for well over a month.Â Wayne Comer was brought up to take his place on the roster.
