Today in Tribe History: September 15, 1962
At Cleveland, 22-year-old “Sudden” Sam McDowell pitches six scoreless innings, striking out 7. He leaves after one out in the 7th after his hard throwing causes him to breaks two ribs. With two outs in the 9th, the Twins score three to win, 3 – 2. McDowell, just recalled from Portland (Pacific Coast League), where he compiled an 8-0 record, including a one-hitter and no-hitter in consecutive starts, will go 11-4 this year.
