On June 4 1936 — The Tigers score 10 runs in the 3rd and 6 in the 5th en route to a 18 – 9 thrashing of the A’s. Philadelphia scores 6 in the 9th but still comes up a bit short. Mickey Cochrane belts an inside-the-park grand slam in the 3rd and collapses after running it out and is replaced. Manager Cochrane will not be in the lineup as a player until July 15. Elden Auker goes the distance for Detroit and might have had a shutout except for 4 errors. The A’s misplay 6.
