Tuesday marked the first time in 34 years that there were seven shutouts in the major leagues on a single day.

Boston beat Chicago 1-0
Minnesota defeated Tampa Bay 8-0
Kansas City blanked the New York Yankees 5-0
Arizona defeated Florida 4-0
St. Louis beat Washington 2-0
Cincinnati defeated San Francisco 3-0
Milwaukee blanked Los Angeles 9-0

According to the Elias Sports Bureau, it was the most shutouts on one day since there were a record eight on June 4, 1972, when 16 games were played. Thirteen games were played Tuesday.

Milwaukee's Doug Davis (four-hitter) and Cincinnati's Bronson Arroyo (three-hitter) had the only complete-game shutouts.

St. Louis' Bob Gibson, Oakland's Catfish Hunter, Detroit's Tom Timmermann, Boston's John Curtis and Houston's Don Wilson pitched complete-game shutouts on June 4, 1972.

There was one constant: Bruce Froemming, who umpired at third base in Milwaukee on Tuesday night, worked at first base when Wilson pitched his two-hitter in Montreal.
