Waters' masterpiece for O's quite a shocker

I'd like to embrace the utter unlikelihood of what Chris Waters did last night.

As we see in a sidebar here, Waters became just the sixth pitcher in the past 50 years to throw eight-plus innings with no runs and one hit in a major league debut. I'd like to expand on that a bit, and include the pitcher (there's only one) who gave up one hit and a run (unearned), and also list each pitcher's age when it happened:

              Age Year  IP  H  R  BB  SO
Chris Waters   27 2008   8  1  0   3   3
Steve Woodard  22 1997   8  1  0   1  12
Bob Milacki    24 1988   8  1  0   4   4
Jimmy Jones    22 1986   9  1  0   0   5
Billy Rohr     21 1967   9  1  0   5   2
Rudy May       20 1965   9  1  1   5  10
Juan Marichal  22 1960   9  1  0   1  12
