David Price faced his former team and threw 7 shutout innings, scattering 5 hits and sealing Boston’s first win, 1-0.

Mike Trout scored both Angels runs, including a homer, and cut off a ball that would have tied the game in the 9th and preserved the 2-1 final in Oakland.

MLB Shutout Survivor Is Back For 2018

 

MLB Shutout Survivor 2018:

Each year we run the list as it comes down in order.  From Opening Day until the last club is blanked, we see which squad can hold off getting zeroed the longest.

Last Year the New York Yankees lasted all the way til July 16, 2017 to take the honors – narrowly beating the Nationals by just over a week (who made it the longest on the Senior Circuit without being bageled.)

You always have to go with the favorites to win this category. This would be the Colorado Rockies and Boston Red Sox considering their potent offenses and home venue for their ball games.

So who you got this year to stave off the blanking the longest?
