James Shields turns in a strong start Tuesday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/20/14) Royals pitcher James Shields turned in a strong start Tuesday against the Rockies.

Shields gave up two runs on nine hits over six innings. He struck out six and walked one during the outing. Shields proved to be hittable early on. After giving up two singles to open the game, Shields induced a run-scoring double-play. Nolan Arenado would also single during the frame, but Shields was able to work around it. Arenado would come back to haunt Shields in the fifth, hitting a solo home run to left center. Shields threw 94 pitches during the start.

With the win, Shields improved the 12-6. He’ll take on the Yankees in his next start. 

James Shields only average in win over Oakland
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/14/14) Right-hander James Shields managed his worst performance in his last eight outings Thursday, but still managed a quality start that helped keep the Royals in first place.

Shields took a 3-1 lead into the sixth against the Athletics, but surrendered an RBI triple to Josh Reddick and run-scoring single to Alberto Callaspo before being removed. He finished having yielded three earned runs on seven hits with one walk and five strikeouts. He had given up just four earned runs in his last 30 innings pitched.

His next start is slated for Tuesday in Colorado.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

It was the first complete-game shutout for Shields (11-6) sine September 2012. The closest the Giants came to causing trouble was a leadoff double in the eighth inning, which was also the only extra-base hit Shields allowed. He owns a 3.25 ERA and 132:34 K:BB ratio in 166 1/3 innings. Shields is scheduled to face the A's Thursday.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Shields (10-8) gave up a pair of solo home runs, one in the sixth inning and one in the eighth, but the A's managed just two other base runners. He owns a 3.43 ERA and 127:33 K:BB ratio in 157 1/3 innings after turning in three straight quality starts. He's scheduled to face the Giants Saturday.

Unfortunately, he's just 1-3 over his last eight games. Shields owns a 3.50 ERA and 125:33 K:BB ratio in 149 1/3 innings. He's slated to take on the A's Sunday.
