Niekro Won 300th Game

Veteran knuckleball pitcher Phil Niekro won his 300th game, giving up only four hits and allowing no runs. At age 45, Niekro became the oldest player to pitch a shutout. Unfortunately, it was not as an Atlanta Brave. After a long career with the Braves, Niekro was playing for the New York Yankees as they beat Toronto.
