Has a baseball pitcher ever thrown a shutout in extra innings?

Three great examples come to mind -- two regular-season games and one World Series classic. On July 2, 1963, Willie Mays of the San Francisco Giants hit a solo home run in the bottom of the 16th inning to snap a scoreless tie between the Giants and the Milwaukee Braves. The winning pitcher was San Francisco's Juan Marichal, who pitched all 16 shutout innings. The losing pitcher was Milwaukee's Warren Spahn who had pitched 15.1 scoreless innings before yielding Mays' home run. Almost nine years earlier, in August 1954, Jack Harshman of the Chicago White Sox pitched a 16-inning shutout against the Detroit Tigers. Al Aber of Detroit gave up the game's only run of the game in the 16th. In Game 7 of the 1991 World Series, the Minnesota Twins and the Atlanta Braves played scoreless baseball before the Twins won 1-0 sin the bottom of the 10th inning. Minnesota starter Jack Morris pitched the entire game for the eventual world champions.
