This day in baseball history

1968- Today Jim Bunning's first win with Pittsburgh, (3-0) at Los Angeles, is also his 40th career shutout and is the game where he receives his 1,000th N.L. strikeout, making him the first pitcher since Hall of Fame Pitcher Cy Young to have recorded 1,000 K's in each league. Jim Bunning went on to become a member of the National Baseball Hall of Fame (Classs of 1996) and a member of US Congress.
