1961 Game 158: Cleveland Indians (76-81) @ Minnesota Twins (70-86)

Thursday September 28, 1961

Indians 12, Twins 5

As much as the previous game went the Twins’ way, the final game in the Cleveland series went for the visitors.

Pedro Ramos lasted just 2/3 of an inning. He allowed four runs on four hits. It was little consolation that three of the runs were unearned.

The Twins scored three in the bottom of the third, but another four-spot by the visitors in the top of the third inning essentially put the game out of reach. The only remaining highlight for the Twins was Harmon Killebrew’s 46th home run of the season in the ninth inning that made the final score 12-5.

Ramos earned the loss, hitting the “magical” 20-loss mark. He did not allow a home run, however, so his league-leading total remains at 39.
