Luis Tiant: 163 pitches and a complete game in game 4 of the 1975 World Series

It was quite a 1975 World Series for the amazing Luis Tiant. He pitched a Game 1 shutout of the Reds, which, by the way, took only 2 hours and 27 minutes. In other words, we used to play quick games before anyone thought of adding a clock to the game.

And in game 4, Tiant came back and beat the Reds, 5-4. He threw an amazing 163 pitches and got out of trouble several times in the game. It also tied the series at 2-2.

What an effort by “El Tiante,” one of the great Cuban pitchers of recent memory.
