QUESTION: Who was the first pitcher to reach 200 career victories without ever posting a 20-win season?


ANSWER: Milt Pappas picked up his 200th win when he pitched the Cubs to a 6-2 victory over Montreal at Wrigley Field on this date in 1972. Pappas won two more games that season to match his career-high (from ’71) of 17 wins, then went 7-12 in ’73 and retired with a career record of 209-164.
