T:  Kent Tekulve (1985 – 1988)

Near the end of a successful career out of the bullpen, Tekulve was still productive. He pitched to an ERA under three in 1985 and 1986 and under four the following two seasons. Still, with a rubber arm, Tekulve surpassed 100 innings twice and led the league in games in 1986 with 90. In 291 games in Philadelphia, Tekulve won 24 and saved 25 with a 3.01 ERA.

U: Tom Underwood (1974 – 1977)

Underwood won a career-high 14 games in his first full season in 1975. His solid pitching continued in 1976 when he posted a record of 10-5 with a 3.53 ERA. Underwood won 28 games with the Phillies and 86 games over 11 seasons with six different teams.
