They just said the last shutout with no strikeouts or walks was by Jeff Ballard in 1989.

J.D. Martinez's resurgence continues.
That's a crazy list for Roger Clemens to appear on. Complete game, 0 Ks? That's like finding Duane Kuiper on the "4 HRs in a game" list.
(also: bravo to Porcello)
In the space of six consecutive batters for the Mariners in the 6th they had double, double, double, double, single, double. Up 10-1 vs. Houston.
Bah, Joe Mauer pulled mid-game--is he injured?
Cliff Floyd and Billy Ripken pouncing on their chance to talk smack about shifting after that infield hit from Holt
No no-hitter, but Lincecum is throwing a pretty good game against the Cardinals, tied 0-0 after the top of the 5th in SF.
Really? I think he has been more lucky than good. Only reason Cardinals didn't score a couple of runs is that he looked real hittable and we were over aggressive.
The always fun 7-2-4 triple play turned by the Indians.
All kinds of confusion on this triple play. Gonzales flies out to LF, Brantley on a dead run fires a pea to nail Gordon at the plate, and the Puig is tagged out trying to sneak up to 2nd base. Puig was originally called safe, replay overturned the call, thus the triple play. I think the umps forgot that the fly out was the first out, as they had the Indians come back on the field for a few seconds.
There's a reason some metrics have the Cardinals with the worst defense in the NL..
According to Lee Sinins' "Fielding Runs Above Average," he has the Cardinals team dead last in the NL, at -28 runs. He has the Rockies at +59.
I have no idea how much stock to put in these numbers, but like I say, it's a metric.
Baseball prospectus has the Cardinals 4th.
Fangraphs has the Cardinals 3rd.
bb-ref has the Cardinals 4th.
Might we be witnessing the Renaissance of Teh Timmeh??
Those numbers seem high to me, but what do I know---I just watch every game and spend a lot of time shaking my head.
Adams has been decent at 1st, Molina, as usual, has been good behind the plate, and Peralta makes plays on what he gets to, but his range is pretty limited to my eyes, so he may not be getting to as much as average SS.
Carpenter has been bad at 3b, and the OF has been TERRIBLE---even golden boy Bourjos has looked bad. No arms at all, they must rank near the bottom in all baseball at preventing runners from taking the extra base. As opposed to the Cardinals batters, who can't score from second on a single, their opponents ALWAYS score from second on a single.
EDIT: Maybe I'm reading Sinins' numbers wrong, maybe "-28" means they've prevented 28 runs, although his stat is called "Fileding Runs Above Average" and Tulo is first at +32, Desmond is worst at -20. Again, I have no idea how he gets these numbers, but it's one metric I saw.
