Cuddyer Homers off Buehrle in a 1-0 Game

Michael Cuddyer

June 17, 2011 – Michael Cuddyer homered and singled off Mark Buehrle in the Twins 1-0 win over the White Sox yesterday. Cuddyer has 33 hits in 96 career at-bats against Buehrle. That ties Cuddyer with Johnny Damon (33-for-97 vs. Roy Halladay) and Todd Helton (33-for-71 vs. Livan Hernandez) for the most hits by any current major-league batter against any current major-league pitcher. It was the second time in Cuddyer’s career that he homered in a 1-0 game. (He also did that on Aug. 19, 2007 vs. Texas.) In franchise history, only two other players have done that more than once: Harmon Killebrew (three times) and Steve Braun (twice). Source: Elias
