Browns Ned Garver Was Starting Pitcher in 1951 All Star Game

Browns ace, Ned Garver was selected to the summer classic as a member of the St. Louis Browns in 1951. Garver started the All-Star Game for the American League at Tiger Stadium in Detroit, surrendering one run on one hit in three innings.

Garver remains the only pitcher in modern baseball history (post-1920) to win 20 or more games for a team which lost 100 or more games in the same season.

He is the only pitcher in Major League history to do so with a winning record.
