Happy Birthday, Gary Mielke

Happy birthday to Gary Mielke, who turns 46 today...

Mielke was a middle reliever who pitched for the Rangers in 1989 and 1990.  I remember thinking that it seemed like every time he pitched, the Rangers lost.

And going back and looking at the game logs, it turns out that in 1990, Mielke appeared in 19 games between April 30 and September 4, and every one was a Ranger loss.

He then appeared in 2 wins in a row, and then finished out the season with 4 more Ranger losses, and never pitched in the majors again.
