This day in baseball: High hit shutout

On September 14, 1913, pitcher Larry Cheney of the Cubs gave up fourteen hits to the Giants.  In spite of this, Cheney managed to come out victorious, 7-0.  It was the first time in major league history that a team has been shut out even while collecting that many hits.
