Mizzou Baseball in the Majors

Crow ties McClure's pitching feat (mlb.com)
Small world, this baseball. When Royals rookie Aaron Crow pitched scoreless ball in his first 13 appearances, he matched a feat done previously for this franchise by his pitching coach, Bob McClure.

Crow, who's been so effective that he's become the eighth-inning setup man, reached a total of 15 1/3 shutout innings in his 13th game, Tuesday night's 10-inning, 6-5 win over the Orioles.

McClure, in his first 13 appearances over the 1975 and 1976 seasons, worked a total of 16 scoreless innings. After 35 years, they're matched up and wearing the same uniform.
