From the Rays PR staff …

James Shields and RH Jeff Niemann each threw complete games Tuesday and each allowed three hits. With help from the Elias Sports Bureau, it was the first time ...

—The Red Sox had a pair of complete games thrown against them in one day at Fenway Park since June 29, 1969 when CLE Luis Tiant and Sonny Seibert did it.

—Two complete games have been turned in by teammates on one day at Fenway Park since BOS Dennis Eckersley and Mike Torrez did it on Sep 23, 1979 vs. DET.

—A team has thrown two complete games in one day anywhere since MIL Angel Miranda and Ricky Bones did it at home against Detroit on August 13, 1993.

—Two CGs on one day by teammates with each allowing 3 hits or less since BOS Matt Young (lost, no-hitter) and Roger Clemens (won, 2-hitter) did it on April 12, 1992 at CLE.

—That Boston was held to 3 hits or less in back-to-back games by the same team since Sep 2-3, 2000 vs. SEA.
