Analysis: Albers (2-0) allowed two singles, struck out two and walked none. He's thrown 17 1-3 straight scoreless innings in a start to his career that grows more improbable each time he takes the mound. "I'm not a prototypical prospect,'' said Albers, who had Tommy John surgery in 2009, was released by the Padres and was playing independent ball in Quebec in 2010.

Analysis: The first big leaguer from Saskatchewan in more than 20 years, Albers at one point retired 15 straight. He was two outs shy of his third straight complete game dating back to Triple-A Rochester, and the first shutout in a big league debut since Detroit's Andy Van Hekken did it in 2002.
