Best Postseason Starting Pitchers In MLB History

7. George Earnshaw

8 GS, 4-3, 1.58 ERA, 62.2 IP, 5 CG

There is, perhaps, no better World Series performance than when Earnshaw took the mound in the 1930 World Series for the Philadelphia Athletics.

Facing the St. Louis Cardinals, the righty went 3-0 in three starts in seven days including two complete games and a two-hit seven-inning performance in Game 5.

Owning a 0.72 ERA in the series, Earnshaw wasn’t done there as the following year he pitched another gem against the Cardinals in Game 4 of the 1931 Fall Classic.

In shutout fashion, Earnshaw evened the series up by tossing with a two-hit, one-walk, eight-strikeout shutout in front of a crowd of 32,295.
