Hutchison's previous shutout was May 16, 2014, at Texas.
"I think it started with my fastball command that night," Hutchison said, per MLB.com. "I was able to get down and away, real consistent, and the last few innings in that game, I found my slider. I feel like I've done a good job of repeating that, making better pitches, executing quality pitches in the zone."
On Sunday, he allowed just four hits without walking a batter. Hutchison struck out eight. He went the distance on 96 pitches, throwing 70 strikes.
"He was really hitting on everything, he had a good exploding fastball, some good breaking balls, mixed in some good changeups," Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said. "So he had them swinging, he was hitting the zone and I don't know if he even broke a sweat tonight. That's one of those games where it's nice to sit back and watch because he was in total control."
Hutchison cut his ERA to 5.12. His next start is scheduled for Sunday, at Minnesota.
Hutchison (3-1) had been able to avoid losses this season despite an elevated ERA, but a two-run double in the seventh saw him lose the lead for good. His other two runs came on a bases-loaded walk in the fourth and a solo homer in the fifth.
Hutchison owns a 6.06 ERA and 43:16 K:BB ratio in 49 innings. He's slated to face the White Sox at home on Monday.
Redmond struggled in two relief appearances in mid-April, giving up eight earned runs in 4 1/3 innings while striking out four and walking five. He's made one start and three relief appearances with Triple-A Buffalo, posting a 4.50 ERA and 13:2 K:BB ratio in 14 innings.
With the change, the team is bumping back the rest of the rotation a day, with Monday's originally-scheduled starter,
Hutchison allowed two runs on five hits and a walk. He threw 98 pitches, 58 for strikes and reduced his ERA to 6.17. His next start will be Tuesday against the Angels.
"He bounced back after a little bit of a slow start, started using his changeup more and really threw a nice ballgame overall," manager John Gibbons said, per MLB.com.
Hutchison (3-0) had been knocked around in his previous two starts before finding his groove Saturday, with an RBI single in the fifth inning representing his only damage on the scoreboard. It was just his third quality start in seven outings this season.
"For his year, where he's at, I thought it was huge that he gets over that hump," Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said. "There's absolutely nothing physical. I thought it might have been a mental thing, which is natural for a young guy like that. I thought it was very important and hopefully that can carry him on."
Hutchison owns a 6.69 ERA and 29:13 K:BB ratio in 36 1/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Astros in Houston Thursday.
