Dennis Bennett, who won 12 games for the 1964 Phillies, died Saturday. He was 72.
Bennett's daughter, Vanessa, said he died at his home in Klamath Falls, Ore., after an ongoing illness. The Herald and News reports that Bennett had been in poor health and was hospitalized in Portland the last two months before returning home Thursday.
Bennett spent three seasons with the Phillies, from 1962 through '64. He went 12-14 with a 3.68 ERA in 41 appearances in 1964.
The 24-year-old lefthander was part of the starting rotation along with Jim Bunning, Chris Short and Ray Culp as the Phillies built a lead in the division.
