Trivia Contest, Day 8

I guess the Day 7 Trivia Question was too hard. However, it is actually on the 1972 card of Gene Mauch, and the anser is Mickey Owen of the Brooklyn Dodgers, on 8-4-41. Not to say that someone else may have done it, too, but the hints should have helped. He was a 4-time All-Star during WWII, and had a lifetime batting average of .255!

So the standings remain the same. Captain Canuck is still in the lead by 1.

Here is today's question:

Who hit 2 triples in his first two big league at bats, but never had another triple in his major league career?

Extra Credit: Who was the pitcher he hit them off of? 

Hint: He was drafted by the St. Louis Cardinals, but hit the triples for a different team.

Good Luck! You'll need it!
