by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Royals pitcher James Shields put together a dominant performance on Thursday, giving his team eight strong innings as he picked up his first win of the season against the Astros in Houston.

Shields (1-2) tossed four scoreless innings to start the game before surrendering a sacrifice fly in the fifth inning, his lone blemish of the night. He yielded one run on four hits and two walks while striking out 12 in a 5-1 win. He threw 107 pitches, 64 of which were strikes.

Shields lowered his ERA from 4.26 to 2.37 over his last two starts, allowing just two earned runs over his last 12 2/3 innings pitched. He will make his next start Tuesday in Cleveland.
