As we are all using our cerebral resources to become amateur comedians, we are losing sight of an interesting trivial tidbit about Dick Pole
. He had an infinite ERA in the 1975 World Series
against the Reds. He walked Bench and Perez in the eighth inning of Game 5
(his only WS appearance), and he did not retire a batter. Bench scored on a sac fly by Concepcion.
