"Gentleman" Jim Lonborg had 22 wins and 246 strikeouts to lead the AL and win the Cy Young Award in 1967. But he solidified his legacy in Boston when he threw a complete game to clinch the pennant by beating Dean Chance and the Minnesota Twins on the last day of the season at Fenway to send the Red Sox to the World Series for the first time since 1946. In his first World Series start, Lonborg retired the first 19 batters he faced, taking a no-hitter into the eighth inning to beat the powerhouse St. Louis Cardinals with a one-hitter, 5-0. Lonborg next led Boston to a 3-1 win by yielding just three hits in Game 5 to pull the series with three games to two. Lonborg's winning ways would come to an end in Game 7 when on only two days rest, he was out-dueled by Cards ace Bob Gibson as St. Louis took the Series.
