Angels’ Francisco Arcia makes history by catching, pitching, homering in same game

OAKLAND, Calif.—Los Angeles Angels catcher Francisco Arcia began the day behind the plate, did a brief stint on the mound and ended up in the major league record books.

Arcia pitched two innings of relief and hit his sixth home run in the Angels’ 21-3 loss to the Oakland Athletics on Thursday.

In doing so, Arcia became the first player to catch, pitch and homer in the same game in the modern era (since 1900), according to Elias Sports Bureau.

The things we wind up doing on a night when our team is being utterly hammered…..

Chris Gimenez pitched and then homered in the Twins' 18-4 loss against the Rangers on September 2. Alas, that was on a day Molitor placed him at first base before moving him to the pitcher's spot. He was the first position player pitcher to allow two homers before homering himself, something he can hold over Arcia.

...and ended up in the major league record books.
Have writers ever actually looked at a record book?
