1) Detroit Tigers- June 8, 1961
2) Pittsburgh Prates- August 8, 1977 (The game you mentioned)

There have also been two other teams that were shutout despite every starting player having at least 1 hit .
1) Minnesota Twins - August 31, 2005
2) Pittsburgh Pirates - May 16, 1935

If you don't use the start and end game restriction, you get 1 team with 11 players each with at least one R, H and RBI, and 18 teams with 10 players. Looking at the games, all had at least one player with a zero somewhere. One or two of the teams had 10 non-zeros and only one player with a zero. So the eight games in your table are the only ones (1919-present, of course).

The list of these games is at http://www.bbref.com/pi/shareit/p30VA

A lot of high-scoring games there.

The last stop, Chicago, would claim the life of RF Lyman Bostock, who was shot and killed on September 23 while visiting family in nearby Gary, IN. He was 27.
