Jack Kralick from the Chronology
Aug 14, 1966 - The Yanks sweep two from the Indians winning the nitecap 6-4. The Indians help in the 2nd game by making six errors in one inning one short of the record. Mantle helps with a homer off lefty Jack Kralick but he'll sit the next 12 days after reinjuring his knee.
Apr 15, 1966 - Cleveland scores 6 runs in the 6th and pushes one across in the 12th to beat the Boston Red Sox‚ 8-7. Jack Kralick is the winning pitcher. George Scott strikes out 5 times for the Sox while Vic Davalillo has 5 walks‚ one intentionally‚ for the Tribe.
May 2, 1963 - The Twins trade P Jack Kralick (1-4) to Cleveland for P Jim Perry (0-0). Kralick was 13-11 and 12-11 in his last two years and will finish with a 13-9 record this year for Cleveland. Perry will spend more than a decade with the Twins posting two 20-win years to tie Pascual for a club record. He'll return to Cleveland in 1974.
Aug 26, 1962 - The Twins Jack Kralick no-hits the A's and wins‚ 1-0‚ on Lenny Green's sacrifice ?y off Bill Fischer. A 3-2 walk to George Alusik with one out in the 9th spoils Kralick's bid for a perfect game. Alusik had beaten Kralick with a 2-run HR on August 8. Fischer, meanwhile, walks no one as his walkless streak continues.
Aug 20, 1961 - The Twins outslug the Angels to win 9-7 and do it with two homers from two pitchers-a 1st in the AL and the last time it happens in the 20th century. Lennie Green starts the offense with a leadoff HR the first of 2 he hits and starter Jack Kralick homers. Al Schroll who pitches 4+ innings for the win also homers. Earl Averill hits a pair for the Haloes.
Jul 4, 1961 - At Metropolitan Stadium the Twins sweep a pair from the White Sox winning the opener 6-4 when Julio Becquer hits a 9th inning grand slam as a pinch hitter. Cal McLish shuts out the Twins in game 2 until the 8th inning when the Twins score 4 runs 2 on Harmon Killebrew's only career inside-the-park-HR off Cal McLish. Appropriately it is the Metro's first IPHR. The Twins win 4-2 behind Jack Kralick.
