Torrez was going on 3 days rest, never knew that. Eckersley pitched Saturday complete game, Tiant pitched Sunday complete game. Guidry was also on 3 days, had pitched a complete game the start before.
In the end for as much shit we give Torrez he was pretty decent career wise. He won 2 WS games in ’77, was a 20 game winner before that, and won 32 games in ’78/’79.
I never would have had faith in them beating the Royals, KC always seemed like a nightmare for them. Plus with a shorter best of 5 series.
