Johan Santana homered and pitched a complete game shutout for the Mets on Tuesday night.

The last time that happened for the Sox was on Aug. 2, 1969 when Gary Peters went deep and limited the Tigers to six singles in a 5-0 win in Detroit.

Now you know

Sox used him quite a bit as a pinch-hitter.

I looked it up once. He pinch-hit 75 times and hit .235 with four home runs. He hit four of his 19 career home runs with the Red Sox, and two of those came in his 21 pinch hit at bats after he was traded to Boston. He had 18 at bats as a pinch-hitter with the Red Sox in 1971, which is quite a bit for a pitcher.

And this was probably the time before. I was at this 1967 game at Yankee Stadium.

I was stationed right up the road in Newburgh NY that year, 9 runs and 18 hits was enormous for the 67 Sox.

I remember Garland and Buehrle nailing HR's, though I believe MB is the most recent.

Of course, when pitchers hit in both leagues and pitchers pitched complete games and more teams were shut out, this feat didn't used to be rare, although it was uncommon. Dave McNally even hit a home run in a World Series complete game for the Orioles only run, although he lost the game 2-1.

Rick Wise hit two home runs while pitching a no-hitter.

There was a year when the White Sox only hit three home runs. Ed Walsh hit one of them. He pitched 11 shutouts that year among his 40 wins, but I have no way of knowing if his home run came while pitching a shutout.

Awesome that Wynn was the only player in the game with two hits.
