Only Ron Guidry Until Yankees Opening Day

49 days
Louisiana Lightning had one of the all time great years a pitcher has ever had. In 1978 he went 25-3 with a 1.74ERA with 9 shutouts, won the Cy Young and finished 2nd in the MVP voting. Your 25th win was also the famous Bucky Dent game which propelled the Yankees in the one game playoff vs Boston. In ’78 you also struck out 18 Angels on June 17th. In 1984 you struck out the Chicago White Sox side on 9 pitches, only 19 other pitchers have accomplished that.
