Who are the only pitchers to hit a three-run homer, accounting for all three runs in a 3-0 shutout (that they threw)?

Okay we give up. Let's try "No One".

The Giants' Brad Hennessey twirled seven shutout innings in a 3-0 blanking of the Brewers on July 28. But that wasn't the big news. The big news was that he also drove in all three runs himself.
His pitching line: 7 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 7 K
His hitting line: 3 AB, 1 R, 1 H, 3 RBI, 1 HR
So how rare is it to have a pitcher hit a three-run homer for all three runs in a 3-0 shutout? According to Elias, only one other guy had ever done it. And that was Al Orth of the Phillies -- more than a century ago (on May 31, 1900).

I believe the question states that the pitcher threw a shutout, which Hennessey did not.
