1964 Qualfier Round - Twins sweep A's in 2 straight

GAME 1 - Metropolitan Stadium
Twins 6, A's 4 (10 inn)
Orlando Pena vs Camilo Pascual

Pena pitched well over his head until he either ran out of gas in the 6th or the Twin bats caught up to him.  Still he left the game up by 1 run, but reliever Ken Sanders could not hold down the fort.  Bespectacled Rich Rollins smashed a homer in the bottom of the 7th to tie the game at 4.  Neither team could gain an advantage, so the game went to extras.  With one out in the bottom of the 10th Moe Drabowsky walked Tony Oliva.  Harmon Killebrew was up next and ended the game with one might swing.
Twins lead series 1-0
