The most controversial contest for induction to the Baseball Hall of Fame ended Wednesday in a shutout.
With all-time home runs leader Barry Bonds and seven-time Cy Young Award winner Roger Clemens among the first-time candidates, the Baseball Writers' Association of America ultimately gave more weight to concerns about performance-enhancing drugs than career playing statistics.
Craig Biggio, also eligible for the first time, was the top vote-getter, named on 68 percent of the ballots, with 75 percent required for induction.
Among other first-time candidates falling short were Sammy Sosa, Mike Piazza and Curt Schilling, like Clemens a former Red Sox great.
