Player: Lindy McDaniel, P, 1963-65
Comment: Yes, we know Don Cardwell threw a no-hitter and Walt Moryn's catch saved it, but this No. 43, on June 6, 1963, entered in the 10th inning of a 2-2 tie and the bases loaded with Giants and one out. First he picked Willie Mays off second. Then he struck out Ed Bailey. And then he led off the last of the 10th with a home run. McDaniel went 13-7 that year with a 2.86 ERA and a league-best 22 saves.
