Pitching Records Fall En Masse

In the first "post-steroid" era, Belle hurlers set 5 new single-season records in major stat categories:

Wins: Oakland's Gary Ramsay posted 27 wins to top the old mark by 1.
Saves: P.T. Lincoln of Syracuse saved 53, eclipsing Geoff Sosa's old record of 50 set last year.
Shutouts: Midre Jose of El Paso notched 5 shutouts; 4 had been accomplished numerous times.
Opponent's Batting Average: San Jose's Midre Estrada joined a long list of pitchers who have allowed opponents to hit only .202.
Opponent's Slugging Percentage: Fred West (Columbus and Austin) notched this mark down to .280 from .285.

Perhaps the most amazing new single-season record was set on offense, where D.C.'s Victor Morales scored 171 runs to break the old record by 1.
