Primarily a reliever, WIlloughby pitched in 238 games during an eight-year Major League career spent with San Francisco, Boston and the Chicago White Sox. He compiled a 26-36 career mark with 34 saves. He pitched in 59 games in his final season, 1978, with Chicago.

His ERA for the Series was 0.00, but he did allow one unearned run and took the loss in Game 3.
