Harry Brecheen, pitcher, 89
BETHANY, Okla. - Harry Brecheen, an All-Star pitcher for the St. Louis Cardinals who won three games in their 1946 World Series victory over the Boston Red Sox, died Saturday in Bethany, Okla. He was 89.
Brecheen, who lived in Ada, Okla., had been in failing health and broke a hip last month, his son, Steven, said.
A slender left-handed screwballer, Brecheen (pronounced Bra-KEEN) finished off the Cardinals' victory in their pennant-playoff series against the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1946 by striking out two batters with the bases loaded in the ninth inning of Game 2 as a reliever.
In the World Series against the Red Sox, he pitched complete games in Game 2, a 3-0 triumph, and in Game 6, a 4-1 victory. Then, on one day's rest, he pitched the final two innings in Game 7, earning the victory on Enos Slaughter's "mad dash" home from first base on a hit to short left-center field in the eighth inning.
He became the first left-hander to gain three victories in a single World Series; eight right-handers had done it before him.
Brecheen had been fatigued while warming up in the bullpen at Sportsman's Park in St. Louis in Game 7.
"You're going to rest all winter, who cares?" he told The Tulsa World in 2001. "Tired arm? You're playing for all the marbles, you don't just say, 'I'm tired, I can't pitch.' "
