Post-Season Shutouts

All-Time List
Christy Mathewson  4 - 1905 (3), 1913
Josh Beckett 3 - 2003 (2), 2007
Whitey Ford 3 - 1960 (2), 1961
Mordecai Brown 3 - 1906, 1907, 1908
Beckett has pitched two shutouts in 166 regular-season starts -- and three in six post-season starts.

This was the first shutout by a Red Sox pitcher in a post-season game since Luis Tiant blanked the Reds in Game 1 of the 1975 World Series.
