1976 Topps Cincinnati Reds Teams Set – Card #469 – Rawly Eastwick
Eastwick’s big league career spanned 8 seasons and 6 teams. Playing for some of the sport’s greatest franchises during that time, Eastwick found himself as part of one of the most celebrated dynasties in all of baseball history during his first few years in the league – Cincinnati’s “Big Red Machine”.
In four seasons with the Reds, Eastwick compiled a 18-10 record alongside a very solid 2.40 ERA.
A relief pitcher, Eastwick was a key part of the Reds’ bullpen success during their push towards their 1975 World Series victory. He appeared in 5 games during that match-up with the Red Sox, earning 2 victories, while compiling a 2.25 ERA over 8 innings of work. While on the roster with the Reds when they defended their championship in 1976, Eastwick did not appear in the 1976 Fall Classic.
