Another Normal Day for A Knuckleball Pitcher - Give That Man Another Kellogg's Card

On this day in 1973 Wilbur Wood of the White Sox gave up six runs in the first inning of game one of a doubleheader.  He recorded no outs in the game.  So, what does he do?  Wood starts game two and pitches into the fifth inning.  He takes the loss again, giving up five runs.

While that is unheard of today, what I find interesting about the box score is that after these two games on July 20th Wood's record stands at 18-14.  This was the year I mentioned in an earlier post (Pitchers to Loss 20 Games and Have a Winning Record) where Wood ended up with a season record of 24-20.

By July 29th he had 20 wins.  As of 7/19/15 the leader this year has 13 wins.
