RON KLINE

Game 149 | January 23, 1967 | Dean Chance, Ron Kline
Both Chance, a starter, and Kline, a relief pitcher; came to the Minnesota Twins on consecutive-day trades in December 1966. Chance, one of baseball's true free spirits and worst hitters, responded by throwing two no-hit games while winning 20 in his first year with the Twins. He developed arm trouble and left the team after the 1969 season in a trade for Luis Tiant and Stan Williams. Kline was nearing the end of his career and was traded to Pittsburgh after spending 1967 with the Twins.
