Lefty closer Mitch “Wild Thing” Williams definately had a place in Phillies’ and World Series’ history. He pitched in 65 games (0 starts) during the regular season in 1993 and he was 3-7 with 43 saves, a 3.34 ERA and a 1.61 WHIP. But, he is most known for his meltdown in the World Series against the Blue Jays. He pitched in 3 games (0 starts) for the Phillies in that World Series and he was 0-2 with 1 save, a 20.25 ERA and a 3.38 WHIP. He gave up 5 hits and he walked 4 batters in only 2 2/3 innings in that World Series. Williams gave up a walkoff homer to Joe Carter of the Jays in Game #6, which ended the World Series! Williams was then jettisoned out of town. He pitched in 200 games (0 starts) in three years with the Phillies and he was 20-20 with 102 saves, a 3.11 ERA and a 1.52 WHIP. Williams is still #3 in Phillies’ history in saves.
