On July 22, 1935 — The Boston Red Sox end a game for the second consecutive day with pitcher Wes Ferrell hitting a walk-off home run. As a pinch-hitter yesterday, his three-run round-tripper vs Tommy Bridges beat the Tigers, 7 – 6, and as today’s starter, his game-ending homer of Dick Coffman earns him a 2 – 1 victory against the Browns. The homerun was his 5th of the season, and he improved his record to 15-10.

He will finish with 25 wins and lead the league in wins and innings pitched. He will finish 2nd in the MVP race. He will also blast 7 homers for the 2nd time in 3 seasons on his way to 38 career homeruns. Which remains the all-time record for Pitchers.
