C:\Users\Tom Hannon\Desktop\Chicago_White_Sox_hurler_Wilbur_Wood_picks_up_his_12th_and_13th_wins_of_the_season.pngOn May 28, 1973, At White Sox Park – Chicago White Sox hurler Wilbur Wood picks up his 12th and 13th wins of the season. The knuckleballer earns the win in the completion of a suspended game against Cleveland, a 21 inning extra-inning affair, Wood pitched the final 5 innings allowing just 2 hits in a 4-1 Chicago victory.

Wood then starts and wins the regularly scheduled game that same day and pitches a 4 hit shutout facing just 33 batters. Wood will go on to win a league-leading 24 games, but he also lost 20 and later in the season he will lose both ends of a doubleheader.
