Stange had hard luck with the 1967 pennant-winning Red Sox, going 8-10 despite a 2.77 ERA. He was slated to start the playoff game had Boston and Detroit ended the season in a tie, but instead, he relieved in the World Series. Working out of the bullpen in 1968, he saved a staff-high 12 games. Stange’s best season was 1963, when he went 12-5 for Minnesota. With Cleveland on September 2, 1964, he struck out four Senators in an inning. He later became a pitching coach for the Twins, A’s, and Red Sox.
