Babe Ruth did it last in 1921 and Wilson Valdez from the Phillies just matched him on May 25th, 2011.   Wilson, started the game playing second base for the Phillies…but in the 19th inning, he stepped up to the pitchers’ mound to earn a win.  

Not only did Valdez get the win, he closed out the 19th inning by getting the Reds' Nos. 3-6 hitters out in 10 pitches.   Valdez had not pitched since a 2002 backyard game he played in the Dominican Republic.  

Wilson is outfitted in Mizuno cleats, wristbands, and batting gloves.
