Pavano’s Walkoff Shutout

Carl Pavano

September 29, 2011 – The Twins beat the Royals, 1-0, when Trevor Plouffe singled home the winning run in the bottom of the ninth inning. That earned a shutout victory for Carl Pavano, who allowed only five hits and did not walk a batter. Pavano is the first Minnesota pitcher to get a shutout in a walk-off win since August 26, 1992, when John Smiley beat the Tigers 1-0 courtesy of a walk-off home run in the ninth inning by Brian Harper. Over the last six seasons the only other major-league pitchers with “walk-off shutouts” were Jamie Shields (May 9, 2008) and Yovani Gallardo (May 28, 2010). Source – Elias
