Son of major leaguer Rene Monteagudo, Aurelio developed an effective screwball. After
the Cuban recorded two of his three ML wins in 1973, California traded him to the
Phillies. He returned to the Angels as a minor league instructor.

The Angels win it in the 13th inning 5–3, with the win going to Campy's batterymate Aurelio Monteagudo.
