On July 10, 1986 Oil Can Boyd (11-6) flies into a rage after learning that he has been left off the American League All-Star team and storms out of Fenway Park prior to Boston’s game against the Angels. He will be suspended indefinitely by the Red Sox and eventually scuffle with local police before checking into a hospital for psychiatric testing. The weirdness continues into the game as the Angels score three in the 12th to take a 7 – 4 lead. Boston then scores three to tie and when Todd Fischer replaces Mike Cook, he balks in Dwight Evans with the winning run.
