On August 1, 1968 — Against the Red Sox, Stan Bahnsen strikes out 12 batters, the most ever by a Yankee rookie, in posting his first major league shutout, 1 – 0. His mark will last 30 years until “El Duque” Hernandez K’s 13 batters. A safe buntby Tom Tresh, a steal and a single by Bill Robinson accounts for the only run off Dave Morehead.
