June 14, 1974 at Anaheim Stadium the California Angels beat the Boston Red Sox 4-3 in 15 innings. Denny Doyle went 3-6, knocking in 2 runs, including a game winning double in the bottom of the 15th. Barry Raziano would pick up the win in relief of Nolan Ryan. This would be the only win for Raziano in his short MLB career. Nolan Ryan would pitch the first 13 innings, allowing 3 runs on 8 hits, walking 10 and striking out 19. This would be the first 19 strikeout game of four for Ryan as an Angel. Ryan would strike out 19 in games twice more in 1974. What was most unusual in this game compared to today is while Ryan threw 13 innings, his opposing starting pitcher Luis Tiant would go 14 1/3 innings before Doyle’s game winning double. Ryan would strike out Cecil Cooper 6 times and throw an unheard of 253 pitches in the game. Ryan would tie Clyde Wright’s club record with 22 wins in 1974, however, he would lose 16 games that year even though he had a 2.89 ERA and 26 complete games as the Angels would only win 68 games and take last in the American League West.
