Detroit Tigers Sweep World Series
Tuesday, October 16th, 1934
The Detroit Tigers made quick work of the St. Louis Cardinals in the World Series, sweeping them aside to clinch the 2nd Major League Baseball crown in Tigers history.

Detroit sealed the series today at Sportsman's Park IV (NL) with a 7-4 victory. During the regular season play, the Tigers notched a 96-58 record and wound up in first place in the American League West race.

"I won't say it was easy, because baseball games are rarely easy," said Detroit manager Casey Stengel. "But I did expect we would have to play a much longer series."

League Championship Series Goes the Distance, Detroit Prevails
Wednesday, October 10th, 1934
Major League Baseball fans were certainly not disappointed with this American League League Championship Series.

The two teams were evenly matched and the series went to the final game, with the Detroit Tigers prevailing over the Washington Senators to advance to the World Series.

Detroit won the final game by a score of 5-2 at Navin Field and that sealed the series 3-2.

"Things were tense in our clubhouse and dugout before and during this game, but we can let loose a bit now -- the hard work is over, for now," said second baseman Charlie Gehringer, who earned MVP honors.

For the series, Gehringer hit .435 with a .435 on-base percentage. He had 0 home runs, 5 RBI and scored 1 runs.

The Detroit Tigers will play against the St. Louis Cardinals in the next round. St. Louis won their series against the New York Giants 3 games to 0. The World Series schedule will be announced after the League Championship Series finishes.
