Appointing opposite party U.S. Senators

Have any U.S. Senators been appointed to fill out a term of a previous Senator who had been of a different political party? If so, who?
I brought this up because of a bar bet between some political junky friends of mine. I guess this would have to be post-17th amendment, but if you have any relevant pre-17th amendment Senate succession stories, I'd love to hear that too.
