COMING IN AT #8 ON THE
BRAVES OF THE 80's
MOONLIGHT GRAHAM AWARD CANDIDATE LIST
Kevin Blankenship pitched only two of his career eight games with the Braves. His career Brave highlight was a seven inning no-decision against the Reds on September 25th. The Braves thanked Kevin for his good outing by trading him to the Cubs for Jody Davis four days later.
Kevin pitched a little too much to get the Moonlight Graham award, but I will give him the honorary Herb Hippauf award, named after the Braves pitcher whose one year Brave career netted him the same number of Brave victories as Kevin Blankenship.
