With Hank Greenberg capturing the MVP with a league high 36 HR, and 170 RBI the Tigers won their 2nd Consecutive AL Pennant, with a 93-58 record. In the World Series the Tigers faced the Chicago Cubs who crushed the Tigers championship hopes twice before. In Game 1 it looked as if it was well on the way of happening again as the Cubs shutout the Tigers 3-0 in Detroit. However, the Tigers would bounce back right away when the first 4 Tigers scored in Game 2 on the way to an 8-3 series evening win. In Game 3 the Tigers would win in extra Innings after blowing a 2-run lead in the 9th. The Tigers would win Game 4 to take a 3-1 series lead, but after losing Game 5 they found themselves in the same position as the year before up 3-2 with the final 2 at home. In Game 6 the score would be tied heading to the bottom half of the 9th. Mickey Cocherane would lead off with a single, a grounder would move him to 2nd, with Goose Goslin stepping up to the plate. Goslin would promptly deliver a single and Cocherane would score the Series winning run to capture the Detroit Tigers their first ever World Championship. The joy of the Tigers championship would be short lived as club president Frank Navin succumbed to a heart ailment on November 13 just a little over a month after the end of the World Series. Walter Briggs Sr. who was already half owner of the club would go on to take over the club's presidency.
