I am going to guess Game 7 of the 1969 Finals against Boston
it is always the first pitch
Yes, although highly unlikely. Such a feat would require a pitcher being the last person to pitch for his team in a suspended game. That pitcher would then need to be traded to the other team involved in the suspended game. Before another pitcher pitches for his original team, the pitcher would need to enter the game and give up enough runs so that his new team is losing (this would only work if they were originally leading or tied). The lead would have to be preserved, such that he pitcher is still the pitcher of record for his old team and gets the win but is also now the pitcher of record for his new team and so gets the loss as well. Normally, in order to win you must be pitching at the time your team wins or the last pitcher to pitch when your team gains the lead. If you give up the lead, and your team cannot get it back, you will be the losing pitcher. If you are pitching when your team loses the lead, but your team does tie or gain the lead, it is concidered a 'no decision' and you will not record a win or a loss.

In order to record a save under baseball rules, the following must happen: The pitcher must be the last to appear in a game won by his team. The pitcher is not the winning pitcher. The pitcher enters the game with a lead of no more than three runs, and records at least one out. He comes in with the potential tying run on base, at bat or on deck. A pitcher can also record a save by recording at least three effective innings to close out a game, at the discretion of the official scorer. Consequently, a blown save is when a pitcher enters a game in any of these situations and allows either the tying or go-ahead run to score. Almost had it - the tying run is on base, on deck, or in the hole. If a team is up by 3 runs and the reliever starts the inning, he can still get the save. Also the reliever cannot create his own save situation.
The Twins record for strikeouts in a game is 15 and held jointly by Camilo Pascual, Joe Decker, Jerry Koosman, and Bert Blyleven.
