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




It's Thursday, and you know what that means.
We take a breather from 1970's baseball cards and delve into 1970's trivia.
Today's topic is "teammates".
See how many answers you can get!
Answers will be posted tomorrow…
1. What two teammates combined for the most wins in a season during the 1970's?

2. Which two teammates combined for the most home runs during a season in the '70's?

3. What pair of teammates combined for the most stolen bases in a season during the 1970's?

4. What two pitching teammates combined for most strikeouts in a season during the "wild" '70's?

5. What slugging teammates drove in the most combined runs in a season during the '70's?

***SPOILER ALERT! ANSWERS BELOW: 

1.  Mike Cuellar & Dave McNally, Orioles. 48 wins between them (24 each) in 1970.

2. Johnny Bench and Tony Perez, Reds. 85 home runs, 45 for Bench and 40 for Perez in 1970.

3. Lou Brock and Bake McBride, Cardinals. 148 thanks in large part to the record-breaking 118 by Brock in 1974.

4. Nolan Ryan and Bill Singer, Angels. A whopping 624 strikeouts in 1973 with Ryan's 383 and Singer's 241.

5. Once again the Reds' combo of Bench and Perez in 1970 with 277 R.B.I.'s. 148 for Bench and 129 for Perez.
