Early Wynn nears a milestone win
White Sox pitcher and future Hall-of-Famer Early Wynn won his 299th career game, beating Washington, 6-3. Wynn threw a complete game, scattering nine hits with three strikeouts. He would get a spring training invite for 1963, but was cut. Fortunately, Cleveland, the team Wynn had pitched for earlier in his career, picked him up and he got his coveted 300th win on July 13, when he won, 7-4, at Kansas City. It was Wynn’s last win in the major leagues.
