November 7, 1974 – Right-hander Mike Marshall becomes the first reliever to win the Cy Young Award. Marshall set MLB records for most innings in relief (208.1), games (106), consecutive appearances (14) and games finished (83). Marshall went 15-12 with a 2.42 ERA and 21 saves to help the Dodgers win their first National League pennant since 1966. The Dodgers acquired Marshall from the Montreal Expos prior to the 1974 season in exchange for center fielder Willie Davis.
