On August 13, 1972 — In an effort to stop a four-game losing streak, Tigers skipper Billy Martin picks his starting lineup out of a hat for the first game of a doubleheader. The idea works as Detroit edges the Indians in the opener, 3-2, but using a regular lineup in the nightcap, the team loses, 9-2.
