Art Nehf started 9 WS games and never allowed more than 6 hits in a regulation game. (He allowed 10 hits in a 12-inning win over Walter Johnson in the '24 Series, and also scored the go-ahead run in the 12th.) His career WS rate of 5.7 hits per 9 IP is one of the best ever by a starting pitcher. He threw 2 WS shutouts against the Yankees, both 1-0 games.

Thanks, Mike. I believe that's the first time I've been quoted or praised online. I am flattered.

By the way, the record for fewest hits in any postseason elimination game is 1, done 4 times, most notably in game 6 of the 1995 WS, a 1-0 win for Tom Glavine (8 IP). David Justice homered off reliever Jim Poole for the game's only run.

The first 1-hit elimination output was by the Oakland A's in the 1974 ALCS -- the only team to win such a game, by 2-1 over Baltimore. Reggie Jackson had Oakland's only hit (an RBI double in the 7th) and 3 of their 11 walks, which was then a record for a postseason game (equaled that very same day by the Dodgers in their 12-1 win over Pittsburgh in the NLCS). Nine of Oakland's 11 walks were issued by Mike Cuellar, who fell 1 shy of the record set by Bill Bevens in his famous WS near-no-hitter.

Gooddisussion on IBBs at Joe's Blog in whih he posits, and proves, that IBBs don't work. Girardi died by the IBB this series -- it really bit him back. Poor management, anyone agree?

According to John Autin (who does a great job posting), in another thread said:

Colby Lewis is done after 8 IP, he has tied David Cone for the #3 spot on the list above, with a Game Score of 76. (8 IP, 3 hits, 1 run, 3 walks, 7 Ks.)

I also love thinking about that 2004 ALCS game 7. The Yankees might've had fewer hits in that game if Pedro hadn't pitched an inning (Lowe and Timlin only gave up 1 each)

The only run was on the blown all on Swisher's HPB
