and the topps back:
figueroa was coming off of a 19 win season in 1977, but his era jumped by about half of a run, and he wound up with a 16-11 record. he completed 12 of his 35 starts, including two by shutout. he made one start in the alcs against the royals, but was touched for 4 runs in 3.1 innings of work. he did not appear in the world series against the dodgers in 1977, however, he would make two starts against them in the 1978 fall classic.
