RHP 1973-76 Pirates, Cubs

the pitching-poor Cubs, but his 5.40 ERA showed his ineffectiveness in the bullpen.

The Pirates 2B collects two hits each in the first and 5th innings, and scores five of his club's runs in a 22–0 massacre of the Cubs, a major-league record for the biggest score in a shut out game in the 20th century. John Candelaria pockets the easy win, while Rick Reuschel is the loser. His brother Paul Reuschel, along with Tom Dettore, Oscar Zamora, and Buddy Schultz also pitch for Chicago.
