Box score of the week (Final one of 2012)

It's World Series time, so let's check out Game Three of the 1983 Fall Classic featuring the Baltimore Orioles and Philadelphia Phillies.


In the first game of the 2012 World Series, San Francisco Giants starting pitcher (and 2002 AL Cy Young award winner) Barry Zito was relieved by Tim Lincecum, who won the NL Cy Young in 2008 and 2009. 

It was the first time in a World Series game that one former Cy Young award winner relieved another since Baltimore Orioles hurler Jim Palmer relieved Mike Flanagan in the game I referenced above.
