Denny McLain Wins 28th, Tigers Win Fourth Straight

by @ 4:13 pm. Filed under 1968 Tigers Diary - September, Denny McLain, Mickey Stanley, Willie Horton

September 6, 1968 at Tiger Stadium
Tigers 8, Twins 3  (90-52)

Denny McLain marched closer to his 30th win of the season and while it wasn’t his best start, it was good enough because the Tigers gave him plenty of offense.  He gave up three runs on nine hits and one walk with twelve strikeouts in the complete game win.  His record was 28-5 after the impressive outing.

Willie Horton had a monster day at the plate.  He went two for four with his 32nd homerun and five RBIs.  Mickey Stanley had a pair of singles and he scored two runs.
