Rays rookie Chris Archer helped American League teams pitch a trio of 1-0 games Saturday, the first time that's happened on the same day in nearly a half-century.
The last time three AL games ended 1-0 on the same day was Sept. 4, 1965, STATS said.
Archer and Tampa Bay edged New York at Yankee Stadium, Justin Masterson and the Cleveland bullpen blanked Texas and Wade Davis and Royals relievers shut out the Chicago White Sox by the same 1-0 score.
Overall, AL teams threw five shutouts - Max Scherzer led Detroit over Philadelphia 10-0 and Samuel Deduno sent Minnesota past Seattle 4-0. In the NL, Julio Teheran and Atlanta stopped St. Louis 2-0.
In 1965, Boston's Dave Morehead threw a shutout at the old Yankee Stadium, Washington's Jim Duckworth won at Tiger Stadium and Steve Barber and the Baltimore bullpen beat Cleveland 1-0 in 11 innings at Memorial Stadium.
