Schmidt Shuts Out Giants for 15th Win
By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS<p>Published: August 13, 2004<p>Filed at 7:23 a.m. ET<p>Jason Schmidt made sure the San Francisco Giants never needed to use their bullpen. That's the way he likes it. Schmidt pitched a four-hitter with 11 strikeouts for his NL-leading 15th win, and the visiting Giants beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 7-0 Thursday night. It was Schmidt's eighth career shutout and third of the season, accounting for all three of his complete games this year.<p>*Of course, the headline should read "Schmidt Shuts Out Pirates for 15th Win," given that Mr. Schmidt pitches for the Giants and thus couldn't possibly shut them out. *
