May 31, 1989: Chuck Finley was named A.L. Player of the Month after posting a 4-0 record with three complete games, one shutout and a 1.37 ERA.   Three complete games in a month?! A lot

Boy, if only we could have hit the reset button after that idiotic "two 8-7 pitchers" comment . . .

You can, but it gets replaced with...

June 2, 1964. 

Dean Chance pitches a 2-hit shutout against the Boston Red Sox, striking out 15 batters. He had a no-hitter going until two outs in the 6th inning. Both Red Sox hits were singles.

It was one of a club record 28 shutouts for the Angels in 1964. Chance would go on to win the Cy Young Award that year.

Ryan pitched almost 2700 innings before he became a free agent.  He was entering his age 33 season.  his bb rate per 9 was 5.5 and his k rate was 9.7.  So not only did he throw a ton of innings but he also threw a ton of pitches.  

I know the environment has changed, but I would consider that a risky FA move and he was the highest paid player in the league.   

Turns out he was a freak of nature.

I have to raise my hand and say that I got to see Chance pitch not once but twice in ‘64. One game was a shutout but don’t remember much more than that.

He was showing signs of being like Steve Carlton though.

The very rare DL stints, maintaining his pitching through the entire season

The other thing being his drawing power

Anyone that lived through Ryan's Angel career knows how many fans he drew to the park. When Ryan first came to the Angels the attendance was horrible on days that he didn't pitch but it was a different story when he did pitch.

Bavasi was an idiot..letting Ryan leave is one of the biggest blunders in ML history.

The Angels played at Dodger Stadium in 1964.

On that Tuesday night in June when Chance pitched his 1-0 gem, there were 3,372 fans in the stadium. The Angels were 17-30 at the time.

i'm sure anaheim bob will be here any moment to complain about a move bill rigney made in the 7th inning on may 17 that didn't work as well as it could have, even though the angels still won the game.

They were 82-80 that year.   Pretty nice record from that point forward (65-50)

Chance started the year in relief.   His moving into the rotation had to be one of the main reasons for the big rally.

I wish the Angels would go do a series there again to see how many HRs Trout could hit.

He tossed 11 shutouts with a 1.65 ERA in 278 1/3 innings in 64. He was a beast!
