100 Greatest Phillies: 55 – Terry Mulholland

Terry Mulholland
Starting Pitcher
1989-1993, 1996

Career w/Phillies: 1070.3 IP / 62-57 / 3.80 ERA / 570 K

Terry Mulholland won half of his major league games as a Phillie, playing his prime with the pinstripes while helping to guide the 1993 Phils to the World Series. That season was maybe his best, recording a 3.25 ERA with a 12-9 record, earning his only career all-star berth. He came to the Phils with Charlie Hayes and Dennis Cook in a trade with the Giants, who wanted former Cy Young winner Steve Bedrosian in return. In his four full seasons as a Phillie, Mulholland started 120 games, keeping his ERA below four each year despite not getting great run support. He also possessed a wicked pickoff move. And of course, he recorded the first no hitter in Veterans Stadium history, a slashing of his former team in August 1990.

Comment: One of my earliest Phillies memories was sitting in the 600 level that warm August evening as Mulholland sat the Giants down. My biggest memory of the night wasn’t Mulholland’s no hitter, but the discovery that my mug got on SportsChannel. Harry Kalas remarked about my scorekeeping, evidently. All zeros for Terry — at least in the hits column. The third greatest post-Lefty pitcher in Phillies history.
