He promptly allowed four consecutive two-out hits, two singles and two doubles. By the time Becquer recorded the third out, the Twins trailed 13-1. Becquer came back out for the 8th inning and had some more success, with only a two-out walk between him and a 1-2-3 inning. It was Becquer’s second career pitching appearance. The firstbaseman had pitched an inning the previous year as part of the Washington Senators.
9/22/1968: Cesar Tovar starts and pitches one inning in a game in which the utility man played exactly one inning at each of the nine positions on the field as part of a promotion dreamed up by Calvin Griffith. Tovar did not allow a hit, but walked one batter and was called for a balk. The game drew just north of 11,000 fans, which was below average for a Sunday game. The Twins won the game 2-1.
