From 1975-1978, righty starting pitcher Larry Christenson won at least 10 games for the Philadelphia Phillies in each season.  His best season for the Phillies came back in 1977.  He pitched in 34 games (all starts) for the Phillies in 1977 and he was 19-6 with a 4.06 ERA and a 1.36 WHIP.  Christenson pitched in 243 games (220 starts) in his 11 years with the Phillies and he was 83-71 with 4 saves, a 3.79 ERA and a 1.28 WHIP.  Christenson is still #7 in Phillies’ history in games started with 220 of them.  He was a good #2 starter for a few years behind the legendary lefty Steve Carlton.
