This Day in Baseball History:
January 29, 1971 > The Pittsburgh Pirates acquire pitcher Nellie Briles and outfielder Vic Davalillo from the St. Louis Cardinals for outfielder Matty Alou and pitcher George Brunet. The newcomers will play important roles in the Pirates' drive to the 1971 World Championship; the versatile Davalillo will emerge as a key player off the bench, while Briles will pitch masterfully in a Game 5 victory over the Baltimore Orioles.
