Bob Milliken pitched two seasons in the major leagues. In 1953, he was a welcome addition to the Brooklyn Dodgers pitching staff as he went 8-4 in 37 appearances (10 as a starter) with an ERA of 3.37. It was the year that the Dodgers won 105 games. Johnny Podres was also a rookie on the team that year and went 9-4. In the 1953 World Series, Milliken pitched 2 innings against the New York Yankees without giving up a run. In 1954, Milliken again had a winning record, going 5-2 in 24 appearances of which 3 were starts. His ERA was 4.02 in a league where the average ERA was 4.07. Despite a .684 winning percentage in the big leagues, he was dispatched to the minors after the 1954 season, where he remained for the rest of his professional career.
One source (Baseball Library) says he had arm troubles in 1950 and 1954, and that he was in the military in 1951-1952.
