|Hammaker Spins Shutout Against Twins|
Monday, September 7th, 1981: Oakland hurler Atlee Hammaker put on quite a show today as he blitzed the Minnesota Twins with a 2-0 shutout. He baffled them with fastballs and changeups, allowing 3 hits with 6 strikeouts and no walks to pick up the win.
The opposing manager told reporters after the game, "I think every time we were looking for a fastball, he threw a changeup and every time we were looking for a changeup, he threw a fastball."
This season Hammaker has crafted a 13-9 mark with a 2.82 ERA in 214 innings. Opposing clubs are batting .241 against him and he has 149 strikeouts.
