Indians | Derek Lowe tosses shutout
Cleveland Indians SP Derek Lowe tossed his first shutout in almost seven years by throwing a six-hitter against the Minnesota Twins Tuesday, May 15. He was the first pitcher to throw a shutout without a strikeout since Scott Erickson in April of 2002. Lowe induced four double-play grounders and won his fourth straight decision. He tossed a season-high 127 pitches for his 10th career complete game and first since August of 2008. It was his fourth career shutout. Lowe said he only threw around "seven or eight" curveballs, with the rest being sinking fastballs. He has allowed three runs or less with six innings or more in seven of his eight starts this year. Lowe walked four in the outing.
