It’s Lefty’s turn to get dirty in an inning from 1972 that honestly wasn’t too bad, all things considered.
Steve Carlton didn’t make a lot of poor starts in the ‘70s. On June 29, 1972, he also didn’t make one. But in the context of one of the best pitchers of all time during one of the best seasons of all time, surrounded by one of the worst teams of all time, this inning was a bit of a disaster.
Join Justin Klugh and Trevor Strunk as they dissect one of the Phillies’ better innings that year in which there still managed to be a little misery.
