Former Orioles star pitcher Cuellar dies at 72

Former Orioles star pitcher Cuellar dies at 72

The Baltimore Orioles say former ace pitcher Mike Cuellar has died.
Cuellar died Friday. He was 72.
Cuellar was a four-time All-Star and helped pitch the Orioles into the World Series in three straight years from 1969-71. He closed out the 1970 championship with a win in Game 5 against Cincinnati.
The left-hander was known for a sharp screwball and was a member of the Orioles' Hall of Fame. He became the first Baltimore pitcher to win the AL Cy Young pitching award when he shared the award in 1969 with Detroit's Denny McLain.
Cuellar was 185-130 overall with a 3.14 ERA in a career that started in 1959 with Cincinnati and ended in 1977 with the Angels.
