Can't Predict Baseball: One Shutout In A Season

On this day in 1939 the New York Yankees were shut out for the first and only time that season, an amazing feat. This feat was not matched by the Greatest Team of All Time in the 1929 Yankees or by the 1998 Yankees that may have been the second best team in Yankees history, but it was done in 1939.

The Tigers right handed pitcher Tommy Bridges limited the New York offense to just four hits and zero runs. The Tigers would beat the Yankees 3-0 on this day.
