Lamabe was successful in his first two seasons, going 7-4, 3.15, with six saves for
the 1963 Red Sox. A conversion to starting failed, however, and he bounced around
the majors for the rest of his career. He was acquired by the Cardinals in July 1967
and made eight appearances in August without allowing a run, helping St. Louis to
the NL pennant. He lost Game Six of the World Series
as the Cardinals used eight
pitchers that day, tying the record.
