Biography | show moreshow less
Selva Lewis "Lew" Burdette (1926-2007) was the first pitcher in 37 years to win three complete games in a single WS and the first since Christy Mathewson (1905) to throw two shutouts in a single Series. The win gave Milwaukee the world championship and earned Burdette Series MVP honors. A slider and sinkerball pitcher, Burdette was widely accused of throwing a spitball as well. Besides winning 20 games in 1958 and 21 in 1959, Burdette won 19 twice and 18 once. His 2.70 ERA topped the NL in 1956. In two All-Star Games, he allowed only one run in seven innings, and Burdette no-hit the Phillies on August 18, 1960.
