This is stunning. It is hard to imagine happening. I am sure Bobby Cox was going crazy.
The Braves and the Cubs tied a major league record on June 3, 1978, using 14 hurlers in a single game. Each team uses seven pitchers when Chicago beats Atlanta at Wrigley Field, 8-6.
The pitchers for the Braves were Phil Niekro (starting), Craig Skok, Eddie Solomon, Adrian Devine, Jamie Easterly, Dave Campbell and Rick Camp.
Phil was 39 in 1978. He would end the season with 19-18 record. He would pitch in the All-Star game. He would have a 2.88 ERA. Pretty good for 39.
