Should be pretty obvious who it was, I just found it interesting.
    The 1971 Orioles?

    Braves was my first thought too but I dont think they ever had 3 in the same season. Although I'm not 100% clear on what the question was. "The second game in a row that they've pitched three 20 game winners"

    Were those 20 game winners from the same team and both "current" year? Was it 3 in BOTH games so 6 total?

    If we can mix and match I'm guessing the Braves had some games with Smoltz closing where another former 20 game winner was brought in for relief as well.

    I think he likes when he gets the round of applause after collecting himself. So far we have the ankle, arm and back that have been hit.

    20 game winners from the same team and both current year, yes. but a couple pitched in both games (ie out of the bullpen).

    Spoiler!

    My first thought was Pete Rose but that feels too obvious

    I thought of two Tony Olivia but I think he is going into the HOF this year. Bill Madlock is the other one.
