    Reds manager Dave Miley was ejected in the top of the fourth inning by home plate umpire C.B. Bucknor for arguing a strike call against Sean Casey. In the bottom of the seventh inning, Cubs manager Dusty Baker was ejected by Bucknor after a fiasco in which the Cubs were caught batting out of order following a botched double switch.

    Norman pitching in relief. Very interesting.

    Fred Norman was the fourth starter in 1974, making 26 starts and 9 relief appearances. The top three starters (Don Gullett, Jack Billingham, and Clay Kirby) each made 35 starts and 1 relief appearance.

    Good stuff. Thanks.

    12 relief appearances from the starting rotation and all were veterans. I can't imagine that happening these days. I wonder if it was just Sparky, or that was the norm for the league?

    They had more than nine relief appearances from the rotation. Roger Nelson (12 starts, 2 relief) and Tom Carroll (13 starts, 3 relief) shared time as the fifth starter--Nelson in the first half of the season, and T. Carroll in the second half. The remaining starts were either spot starts by relievers (three by Clay Carroll, and one each by Tom Hall and Dick Baney), or September callups (two by Pat Darcy).


    It was not uncommon in those days for the #4 starter to pick up a handful of relief appearances over the course of the season, and and even for the top starters in the rotation to sometimes make one or two relief appearances a season. (Most pitching staffs had only 9 or 10 pitchers.) Very few (if any) clubs had a set #5 starter, and most clubs would skip over their #5 starter whenever possible.

    Forgot about Norman. Freddy was good and bad, but an important part of Reds history.
