Former Orioles pitcher Ed Farmer passes away

Recommended Posts

Tied with Gordie Sundin and Jeff Rineer for shortest career by an Oriole pitcher.  Each faced two batters. 

In the third inning of the second game of a doubleheader on September 7th 1977 Farmer was brought in to face the Tigers with Jason Thompson and Rusty Staub on base.  He gave up a single to Lance Parrish, then a walk to Ben Oglivie.  Was removed for Randy Miller, who let Parrish score.  So Farmer's Oriole ERA is infinite.

Sundin had a similar story in '56 as an 18-year-old.  Rineer got the most out of his two batters - credit for a whole inning pitched.  Came on in the 6th inning of the last regular season game in '79 with Ron Hassey on first.  Got a flyball to left, then an GIDP, and his major league career was over.
