James Shields comes up short in Royals' Game 1 World Series loss
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Royals pitcher James Shields was roughed up in Game 1 of the World Series Tuesday, taking a loss after surrendering five earned runs on seven hits and one walk in three-plus innings while striking out one in his team's 7-1 defeat against the Giants.

Shields (1-1) hadn't been having a great postseason despite the Royals' impressive run of wins, giving up 10 earned runs in 16 innings heading into his Game 1 start. His night turned south immediately Tuesday, as the Giants followed up a one-out, RBI double with a two-run home run to take a 3-0 lead in the first inning. Shields retired seven straight heading into the fourth, where he opened the inning with a double, walk and RBI single to get the hook. The loss, which was the first of the postseason for the Royals, puts the AL pennant winner in a 1-0 hole going into Game 2 Wednesday in Kansas City.

Royals' James Shields turns in rough start Friday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Royals pitcher James Shields had a rough start Game 1 of the ALCS against the Orioles.

Shields allowed four runs on 10 hits over five innings. He struck out three and walked one during the outing. After tossing two scoreless frames to open the game, Shields allowed his first run in the third. After a base-runner advanced to third on a groundout, Shields gave up an RBI-single to Adam Jones. Things also went south in the fifth. After two straight singles, Nelson Cruz managed to drive in one run on a double. With two men on, Ryan Flaherty drove them both home with a single later in the inning. He would not start the sixth inning. Shields was saddled with the no-decision.
