1961 Game 160: Detroit Tigers (99-61) @ Minnesota Twins (70-88)

Saturday September 30, 1961

Tigers 6, Twins 4

It might have been a good thing that the Twins decided to start the game at 10:00 AM to accommodate fans who wanted to see the Golden Gopher football game that afternoon – a good thing for Detroit. The Tigers won 6-4 in a rain-shortened game. Based on the scoring in the first few innings, it is a game which might have gone back-and-forth a few more times before the ninth inning.

As it stood, the Twins dropped another and Detroit reached the 100-win mark.
