No. 3: Steve Carlton vs San Francisco Giants (4/25/1972)

Final line: 9 IP 14 K 0 R 1 H 1 BB

Steve Carlton is not only the greatest Phillies pitcher ever, but one of the greatest pitchers ever period. But 1972 was a year unlike any other. Here is a list of his career bests set in that year: 27 wins, 1.97 ERA, 30 complete games, 8 shutouts, 346.1 innings, 310 strikeouts, I don’t think I have to go on. Those are unfathomable numbers. But in a year so great this was by far his most dominating start.
