Bill Bevens

Bevens pitched and lost one of the most famous games in baseball history, Game Four of the 1947 WS. Only 7-13 for the Yankees during the regular season, he survived a record 10 walks while holding the Dodgers hitless, and led 2-1 with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning. Veteran Cookie Lavagetto‘s pinch-hit double off the right-field wall (his last major league hit) not only ended Bevens’s bid for the first WS no-hitter, but also drove in the tying and winning runs for the Dodgers.
