JUST FOR THE FUN OF IT- 1970'S BASEBALL TRIVIA PART XXXXVII




Hey everyone…
It's trivia time again.
This week I'll follow last week's theme and ask for the top performers of the decade, but from the pitching side of things.
Call it laziness or poor searching skills, but I'm having a heck of a time finding "Top-3's" for losses…so forgive me on that one.
Answers will be posted tomorrow…
1. What pitchers posted the top-3 wins totals during the 1970's?

2. Who are the top-3 strikeout pitchers during the decade?

3. Who are the top-3 E.R.A. men of the 1970's?

4. What three pitchers posted the most shutouts during the 1970's?

5. What pitcher suffered the most losses during the decade?


***SPOILER ALERT! ANSWERS BELOW: 

1.  Jim Palmer, 186 wins; Gaylord Perry, 184; and a three way tie for third: Steve Carlton/Tom Seaver and Fergie Jenkins with 178.

2. Nolan Ryan, 2678 K's; Tom Seaver, 2304; Steve Carlton, 2097.
 
3. Jim Palmer, 2.58; Tom Seaver, 2.60; Bert Blyleven, 2.88.
 
4. Jim Palmer, 44; Nolan Ryan, 42; Tom Seaver, 40.

5. Phil Niekro, 151 losses between 1970-79.
