April 19

1961 Bazooka #7 - Minnie Minoso

On this day in 1960, Minnie Minoso belted a grand slam, a game winning home run and had six RBI in a wild win over the Athletics. Minnie was reacquired over the offseason and found himself on a defending championship team. Reminiscent of a meltdown by the 2012 pitching staff a few days ago, the 1960 staff blew a 9-2 lead, making Minoso's heroics necessary.
