September 29, 1963, the Detroit Tigers 19-year-old Rookie Denny McLain scatters 10 hits in a complete-game effort winning his second game 7-3 in his first three starts. McLain is a future bright spot for the Tigers who finished 25 games out of first place. Willie Horton bangs out 3 hits for the Bengals. Wally Bunker lasted just 4 innings taking the loss for the Orioles.
Charlie Dressen said he thinks McLain may make the club next year. McLain will win 20 games 3 years later and become the last player to win 30 games in a season, win 2 Cy Youngs, MVP Award, and World Championship all by the age of 25. Before his demise in 1972 at age 28 his comparison is Greg Maddox.
