Tigers Cut Magic Number to Two After Six Straight Win

by @ 4:35 am. Filed under 1968 Tigers Diary - September, Bill Freehan, Jim Northrup, Mickey Lolich, Willie Horton

September 15, 1968 at Tiger Stadium
Tigers 13, Athletics 0  (96-54)

The Tigers continued to roll in a number of ways.  They not only ran up the score on the A’s, but Mickey Lolich threw a shutout and the Tigers cut their magic number down to just two.  Lolich continued to build on his strong second half and he gave up just three hits and two walks with twelve strikeouts in the shutout.

Three different Tigers belted a combined five homers in this one.   Jim Northrup and Bill Freehan both belted a pair.  Freehan finished with four RBIs while Northrup drove in three.  Willie Horton also went yard with his 36th of the season.  He went two for four and his homerun was a solo shot.
