Baseball in Pics on single-season shutout leaders since 1920

Nobody pitches shutouts often now since nobody pitches many complete games and more. Only one item on this list is later than 1978.

Bob Gibson’s 1968 season was amazing. I have posted on it elsewhere on the blog.

The Cardinals won 97 games, Gibson’s ERA was only 1.12 and he still only went 22-9. How did he lose any games with great performances on the NL championship team?
