On this date, Bob Gibson threw his twenty-first complete game of the 1968 season. In one of his most dominant starts of the season, Gibby limited the Phillies to just two hits (both singles) while striking out 11 batters en route to his tenth shutout of the season. It was also Bob’s third victory of the year by a score of 2-0.
With the win, Gibson improved his record to 18-5 with a 1.00 ERA over 26 starts. Over his last 16 starts, Gibson was 15-0 with a 0.68 ERA and 10 shutouts. #CompleteGamer
