Denny McLain Loses Pitchers Duel In Tigers Second Straight Loss

by @ 3:21 am. Filed under 1968 Tigers Diary - September, Denny McLain, Don Wert, Gates Brown

September 23, 1968 at Memorial Stadium
Orioles 2, Tigers 1  (101-56)

The Tigers failed to set their new franchise win record for the second straight day and Denny McLain lost his sixth game of the season.  Blame the offense on this one though because McLain definitely threw a good enough game.  He gave up just two runs (one earned) on five hits and five walks with four strikeouts in seven innings.  The loss dropped his record to 31-6.

Gates Brown went two for three with a double.  Don Wert singled and he scored the lone Tigers run.
