Former Creighton star Ty Blach throws first major league shutout

The San Francisco Giants scored 10 runs in Friday's victory over the Philladelphia Phillies. Thanks to Ty Blach, they would have only needed one.

The former Bluejays ace delivered his first career shutout for the Giants, scattering seven hits, striking out four and walking none. He threw 112 pitches, including 77 strikes.

It was his eighth start of the season and 10th of his career. The 26-year-old has a 4-2 record with a 3.24 ERA and 23 strikeouts in 2017.

Blach also became the first pitcher to have six plate appearances in a game since 2002. He had no hits, but walked three times and scored twice.
