While Saturday marked the second time the Rays have thrown a shutout with 15 strikeouts and no walks -- and the fourth time a team has had 15 or more strikeouts and no walks in a shutout this season -- it is only the 19th time it has happened in the Major Leagues in the past 100 years.
"I was amazed by it," Rays manager Joe Maddon said. "I knew we had a lot of strikeouts after the game. But I didn't know that we didn't have any walks, that didn't compute. And then to see zero and 15, it's pretty impressive."
