After five innings Randolph is taken out, having done a good day's work, and a new pitcher, Elmer Koestner, takes up the mantle. And of course everything goes straight to hell from there. Koestner can't seem to find the plate, and when he does, the Sox knock the pill all over the yard. When the dust clears, the Sox have beat the Angels 6-1.
The irony is that it would be Koestner who made it to the majors, while Randolph never got any further than the PCL. Looking at Koestner's stats, he was never very good at the major league level as a pitcher. His lifetime batting average of .315, on the other hand, you would think would have counted for something.
