Chris Short

Phillies’ manager Gene Mauch relied on Chris Short, above, the best left-hander in the team’s rotation and still healthy late in the season. On September 25, starting on two days’ rest, he pitched into the eighth inning, allowing only three runs in a game the Braves finally won in the twelfth. (COURTESY OF THE PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES)
