Biographical Information[edit]

Angel Mangual hit the game-winning pinch single in the 9th inning of Game 4 of the 1972 World Series. He was the third straight pinch-hitter to be successful for the Oakland Athletics that inning. The A's entered the bottom of the 9th inning trailing the Cincinnati Reds, 2-1, when Gonzalo Marquez started a rally with a one-out pinch single. Pinch-runner Allan Lewis then moved to second base on Gene Tenace's single and scored when veteran Don Mincher came through with a pinch hit. Mangual then batted for pitcher Rollie Fingers and pushed a pitch from Clay Carroll through a drawn-in infield to end the game.

He is the brother of Pepe Mangual. Angel's nickname is "Cuqui".
