Finally, we close things out for this installment with Bruce Hurst, whom I remember better as being one of the starters for the ill-fated 1986 Boston Red Sox. He went 1-0 in the 1986 ALCS and 2-0 in the World Series. He had a career record of 145-113 with a 3.92 ERA and 1689 strikeouts, for his career between 1980 and 1994. In 1990 with the Padres, he went 11-9 in 33 starts, with 9 complete games, a league-leading 4 shutouts, and a 3.14 ERA.
With this fair bit of talent, the 1990 Padres finished in a tie for fourth with the Astros in the NL West, with a 75-87 record. They fared better in 1989, in second place in the NL West with an 89-73 record, which was third best in the NL.
I think next Friday, we'll check out who the best of the 1990 Astros were. Thanks for reading!
