July 3, 1968: A super day for Luis Tiant



Tiant finished the 1968 season: 21-9, a 1.60 ERA, 264 strikeouts and 19 complete games.    Unfortunately for Tiant,Denny McLain won 31 games that year and ran away with the AL Cy Young award.
Tiant was the AL starter in the 1968 All Star game.   He pitched 2 innings and gave up the game’s only run.    The NL beat the AL, 1-0.
Tiant’s excellent pitching put the Indians in 3rd place behind Detroit in the last season before divisions.
Of course, they will never forget him in Boston for pitching in the 1975 World Series.
