Game 121 | January 22, 1964 | Sam Mele, Jim Roland, Bill Fischer
Both Roland and Fischer were counted upon to play major pitching roles for the 1964 Twins. It didn't quite work out that way for Mele, the team's manager. Fischer; in his sixth American League stop, was released and retired after appearing in only nine games. Roland won 2 and lost 6 while saving 13 games. The Twins that year finished 79-83, 20 games out of first place.
