Denny McLain Picks Up Ninth Win In Tigers Comeback

by @ 3:43 am. Filed under 1968 Tigers Diary - June, Daryl Patterson, Denny McLain, Jim Northrup, Mickey Stanley

June 5, 1968 at Fenway Park
Tigers 5, Red Sox 4  (32-19)

The Tigers overcame a three run first inning deficit to top the Red Sox 5-4.  Denny McLain had the tough first inning but he buckled down and improved to 9-1.  He gave up four runs (three earned) on five hits with a strikeout in six innings.  Daryl Patterson was fantastic and he threw three no-hit innings to close the game out and he picked up save number one.

Mickey Stanly hit his fourth homer of the season, a solo shot in the sixth inning.  Jim Northrup reached base three times with a pair of singles and a walk.
