 Biographical Information
Neil Allen threw a two-hitter on July 20, 1986 as a member of the Chicago White Sox against the New York Yankees. He did not walk or strike out anyone in the game. The two hits were a double by Rickey Henderson and a single by Dave Winfield. This was the only two-hit shutout with no walks and no strikeouts since at least 1957. Rudy May had a similar game in 1977 but it was not a shutout.
Since retiring as a player, Allen has spent over a decade as a minor league coach. He coached in the Toronto Blue Jays system from 1996-1999 and the New York Yankees chain from 2000 to 2006. He was also the Yankees' bullpen coach in 2005.
