Has there been a game where one team had no zeros in the box score (every player with at least one hit, run, and RBI)?The question refers to the main columns of a box score: AB-R-H-RBI.
In the late 70s, box scores were minimal and those were the only columns. Here's an example, from 1976:
Only keeping teams with 9 matching players (and sorting by date) gives us the following list:
April 19, 1921 Pirates 14, Cubs 2 April 23, 1926 Cubs 18, Reds 1 June 5, 1929 Red Sox 17, White Sox 2 July 23, 1933 (G1) Cardinals 12, Braves 0 July 6, 1934 Red Sox 18, Athletics 6* August 25, 1936 (G1) Braves 20, Cardinals 3 July 7, 1945 (G2) White Sox 12, Athletics 4 September 14, 1978 Angels 16, Rangers 1*:
July 30. In the bottom of the first inning, they scored 12 times and then added three more runs in the second. After only two innings, the New York box looked like this:
There have been about 50 games in which the starting nine had no zeroes, but then players came into the game from the bench and had zeroes. An example, from July 14, 1997:
18 games since 1919 with 10 players having at least one hit, one run scored, and one RBI. The Reds had a record 11 players on June 13, 1975 (8 starters and 3 subs).
