Reds shut out again

by Bill Chuck on July 10, 2013

Last night, Milwaukee’s Wily Peralta shut out the Reds on three hits in the Brewers 2-0 victory at Miller Park.

It was Peralta’s first career complete game. More significantly, it was the Brewers’ first complete game since Yovani Gallardo‘s two-hit shutout on April 5, 2011, a stretch of 407 games that the Brewers said was the longest such drought in major league history (but could their research be incomplete?).

It was the seventh time the Reds have been shut out this year after just four all of last season. But they are not the only team getting whitewashed on a regular basis this season.

There have been 174 times that teams have been shut out this season, equal to the entire 1951 season and more than 31 other seasons.
