Blog #44 (Claude Osteen)

Although Claude was never thought as of the No. 1 starter on his particular team, he was quite a good pitcher. He had 196 career wins, a 3.30 career ERA, 1612 career strikeouts, won 20 games twice (1969 and 1972), made 3 All Star teams (1967, 1970 and 1973 when he got the win after 3 innings of work) and was a World Champion with the Dodgers in 1965 when he pitched a shutout in Game 3 against the Minnesota Twins following losses by his superstar teammates Don Drysdale and Sandy Koufax.
