Ryan was tough to hit because he didn't through many pitches in the strikezone.
Koufax was the best period. He did it with two pitches only, fastball and unbelievable curve. Scoring a run against him was major achievement, two runs was a bad day for him and three runs meant he was rocked!
Scoring two runs against any ace pitcher was a bad day in the 60s. A 3.00 ERA out of your ace during that time meant your staff was in trouble.
