Steve Ziem

Steve was a righty reliever who got called up to Atlanta in 1987 when Paul Assenmacher went on the DL… Appeared in two games in two days and never reached the majors again… had a loss in his first appearance when he entered an 8-8 tie in the eleventh, gave up a hit and balked the guy into scoring position. (Was ’87 the year of the balk?) Ed Olwine relieved him and got the next hitter to hit a routine grounder which Rafael Ramirez threw away… along with Charlie Puleo he pitched a combined no-hitter for Richmond against OKC on 6/27/89.

I hope his name rhymes with diem as in carpe diem but it probably doesn’t.
