George Frazier had a particularly bad outing on August 3, 1982 as a member of the New York Yankees. He pitched only 1 and 1/3 innings giving up 11 hits and 10 earned runs; amazingly this outing only raised his ERA from 2.49 to 3.88. He is the only reliever to give up 11 hits in less than 2 innings since at least 1957 (as of 2006).
He is also known for losing three games in relief in the 1981 World Series. Lefty Williams is the only other pitcher to have lost three games in a single World Series (in 1919), although in Williams' case, he was presumably not trying his best, as he was later thrown out of baseball as one the infamous Black Sox who conspired to lose the 1919 World Series to the Cincinnati Reds.
