Rookie Shelby Miller retired 27 straight after giving up a lead-off single to Eric Young Jr as he pitched a one-hit shutout in the St Louis Cardinals' 3-0 win over the Colorado Rockies.

Young was the only man to get on base for the Rockies as Miller fanned 13 in the first complete game of his young career. Carlos Beltran went yard for the Cardinals, while Matt Holliday and Pete Kozma each drove in a run.

Jon Lester also hurled a one-hitter to lead the Boston Red Sox to a 5-0 win over the Toronto Blue Jays.
