1987 Topps, Jeff Lahti
#367 Jeff Lahti
Here is the second and final Jeff Lahti card that I got signed at the '85 Classic. You can see the first one here.
In the first Lahti post, I commented on some of his regular season achievements. Today, let's take a look at what he did in the postseason.
Jeff only pitched in one LCS and it was in 1985. In that series, he made two appearances out of the pen and pitched two scoreless innings while giving up two hits and striking out one. He was even the winning pitcher in game five. Unfortunately, his World Series line doesn't look nearly as good.
He pitched in two World Series, 1982 and 1985. Combined, he 0-0 with a save and a 11.81 ERA in 5.1 inning of work. He only has one walk, so he just got plain hit in his World Series work. In game two of the '85 series, he pitched one scoreless inning for a save. In game five, he pitched two innings, allowing two runs (one earned) and five hits. Then, in game seven, he gave up four runs on four hits in only .2 of an inning as the Cardinals went on to lose 11-0.
Stay tuned tonight for another '87 Topps card from the Classic. It will actually feature a new player.
Also, I have all of the pictures from the AABT trip, so I'll start on a recap soon.
