Tenth Straight Win Is Tigers 100th Win

by @ 4:57 am. Filed under 1968 Tigers Diary - September, Al Kaline, Jim Northrup, Jim Price, Mickey Lolich, Pat Dobson

September 20, 1968 at D.C. Stadium
Tigers 6, Senators 3  (100-54)

The Tigers won their tenth straight and in the process, they reached the 100 win mark for just the fourth time in franchise history.  They were hoping they wouldn’t repeat history though because the other three times they won 100, they couldn’t get that World Series ring.  Still, Mickey Lolich threw a very nice game and he improved to 16-9.  He gave up three runs on three hits and seven walks with nine strikeouts in seven innings.  Pat Dobson threw two shutout innings to close the game out and he picked up his seventh save of the season.

All six Tigers run came via the long ball.  Jim Northrup belted a pair of two run homers while Al Kaline and Jim Price also went yard with solo homers in the win.
