90 years and 635 wins
On April 9, 1987, two 300-game winners appeared in the same game for the same team: Knucksie and Lefty, for the Cleveland Indians. It was the first time it ever happened and, with Jamie Moyer’s 267 wins leading active pitchers, it won’t happen again. Not in our lifetime.
Knucksie, opposed by another former Brave, Joe Johnson, hurled a workmanlike five innings for his 312th win. Steve Carlton relieved his fellow Hall of Famer, completing four scoreless innings for his second career save. Several other once and future Braves were in Exhibition Stadium that night: Julio Franco, playing SS for the Indians, Brook Jacoby, Brett Butler, Otis Nixon, Ernie Whitt, Duane Ward and the Crime Dog.
