This Day in Twins History – July 25, 1977

Coming off a double header sweep (with the 2nd game going 12 innings) of the A’s the day before, the Twins are again going up against the boys from Oakland at Met Stadium. The game goes 11 innings before the Twins prevail 2-1 on a bases loaded single by Larry Hisle. But, the real story of the game is Twins starter Dave Goltz who pitches all 11 innings throwing 180 pitches. Goltz improves his record to 12-6 as he faces 41 batters giving up 8 hits and walking 1 while striking out 14 Oakland A’s. In spite of all of this, the game is over in 2 hours and 39 minutes. Goltz goes on to finish the season with a 20-11 record and 303 innings pitched in 39 starts and a 3.36 ERA. The SABR bio for Mr. Goltz can be found here.  Box score
