Did you know that Pete Center, on May 31, 1943, was part of a unique baseball oddity which has only occurred seven times in Major League history? He relieved out of the Indians bullpen in both ends of a doubleheader and lost Game 1 , but won Game 2 - not that odd. However, Alex Carrasquel relieved in both ends of that same doubleheader for the Senators and won Game 1 , but lost Game 2 . Two relievers, two games, same day, both received both the decisions and both split the wins and losses evenly.
