Mike Cuellar and the Orioles won game 5 and the 1970 World Series

On this day in 1970, Santa Clara, Cuba native Mike Cuellar pitched a complete game and the Orioles took the World Series in 5 games.

During his brilliant career, he won 185 games, a 3.14 ERA and completed 172 starts! Without question, one of the best Latino pitchers ever. Cuellar won 68 games over a 3-year span and pitched well in the post season for the Orioles.

Mike died in 2010. He was voted #27 in the Top 40 Orioles of all time.
