Weird stat line - Neil Allen

That line for Neil Allen in 1988 looks like an error - a shutout but not a complete game? However, it really happened. On May 31, 1988, Al Leiter started for the Yankees, and was hit by a Carney Lansford line drive to lead off the game. Lansford reached safely, and Leiter had to leave the game. Allen came in and pitched a shutout, retiring all 27 batters without a run - technically, a shutout but not a complete came.
