Andy Lyons/Getty ImagesJohnny Cueto didn't allow a run in eight innings on Sunday and still couldn't get a victory.There had never been a day in which at least eight different Major League Baseball starters each threw at least seven innings while allowing no more than three hits. Well, on Sunday, this happened a record 10 times.
From ESPN Stats and Info, how history was made:
Johnny Cueto: Hitters were 1-for-8 with five strikeouts in at-bats ending in his cutter, the most strikeouts he's had with that pitch in any start in his career.
Just one problem for Cueto and the Reds: They lost 1-0 in extra innings.
