He entered a game in the top of the 9th inning, and threw one pitch which he turned into a triple play.

In the 1967-05-30 game, the Cards were winning 1-0, when the Reds scored 2 in the bottom of the 8th and the Reds notched the game-ending, game-winning triple play in the top of the 9th. Most have been an exciting turnabout to witness. Don Nottebart came in in relief. He pitched to only one batter, but got three outs, and the save. Quite a nice night of work. He'd go on to get only 3 more saves that season but have a great season as a middle reliever (Abernathy was the main fireman that season).

In the 1991-09-08 game, Barry Jones (like Nottebart) pitched to one batter, got three outs and a save.
