Derek Holland was absolutely masterful in Game 4 of the 2011 World Series. In what was essentially a must-win for the Rangers, the southpaw turned in 8.1 innings of two-hit baseball (with Lance Berkman producing both Cardinal hits).
In this decade, there have been a total of eight World Series shutouts. What's interesting is that all eight of those shutouts were thrown by the team that went on to win the World Series.
In other words, no team has gone on to win the World Series after being shut out. Not good news for Cardinals fans.
Here's how I rank all eight shutouts since the turn of the century.
