The 1965 Dodgers bullpen was structured differently than their more modern counterparts. With starters combining to lead the NL in complete games (58) there were little fires to put out and it didn’t take multiple relievers to finish games when they did come in.
This bullpen rates high because other than number one they were the only bullpen to reach 80% in save opportunities while also allowing an inherited run a respectable 32%. This bullpen was defined by their workhorses.
Ron Perranoski and Bob Miller gave the bullpen a righty-lefty combo that combined to pitch 207 2/3 innings, record 27 saves, and win 12 games. Essentially the duo acted as a fifth starter for the team while providing mop up duty when the starters faltered.
With an offense that was in the bottom 10 for most offensive categories runs were hard to come buy, when the starters faltered Perranoski and Miller were there to save the Dodgers.
