by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

James Shields settles for no-decision opening day
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Royals starting pitcher James Shields was able to outduel Tigers starting pitcher Justin Verlander for much of the afternoon in Monday's season opener, but Detroit rallied late, costing Shields a chance at opening the season with a win.

Shields gave up just one run through six innings on a leadoff home run from Victor Martinez in the second inning.

The veteran right-hander carried a 3-1 lead into the seventh inning, but was pulled with one out after after allowing an Austin Jackson triple and walk to Alex Avila. Reliever Aaron Crow allowed both inherited runners to score and Detroit tied the game at 3.

Shields was charged with three runs on five hits and one walk in 6 1/3 innings. He struck out three. His next scheduled start is for Sunday against the White Sox.
