September 3, 1968 at the Oakland Coliseum
Tigers 6, Athletics 3Â (88-52)
It looked like the Tigers were going to let this game get away.Â Up 2-0 in the eighth inning, Earl Wilson was finally touched up for three runs and the Tigers entered the ninth down by a run.Â Fortunately, they stormed back and scored four in the ninth to escape with a win.Â The big hit of the inning was a two run single by Jim Northrup that gave the lead back to Detroit.Â Earl Wilson helped out his own cause earlier in the game with a solo shot, his sixth homer of the season.Â
Wilson threw a solid game he just had the one bad inning.Â He gave up three runs (two earned) on six hits and two walks with seven strikeouts in 7 2/3 innings.Â Pat Dobson threw a shutout ninth and he improved to 5-5 on the season.
