“Put your club a run ahead in the later innings, and Marichal is the greatest pitcher I ever saw,” Giants manager Alvin Dark said.
Juan Marichal made his major league debut for the Giants against the Phillies on July 19, 1960. He retired the first 19 batters, and carried a no-hitter two outs into the eighth inning, limiting the Phils to one hit en route to a 2-0, complete game victory with 12 strikeouts and just one walk. The 21-year-old right-hander would go 6-2 that year, with a 2.66 ERA.
In 1962, he went 18-11, helping lead the Giants to the NL pennant, though pitching only briefly in the World Series loss to the Yankees due to an injury. The next season was the first of four consecutive 20-win campaigns for Marichal, who topped that mark of excellence six times, and won 25 or more three times.
Marichal had his breakout season in 1963, going 25-8 and leading the NL in innings with 321.1.
