Game 201 | January 17, 1972 | Brooks Robinson, Dave LaRoche
Robinson finished fourth in the MVP voting after the 1971 baseball season and was making his second appearance at Dunkers. The Twins, needing bullpen help after the 1971 season, traded shortstop Leo Cardenas to California for LaRoche. In his single season with the Twins the left-handed reliever won 5 and saved 10 games. He was traded at the end of the 1972 season to the Cubs for Bill Hands and Joe Decker.
