Padres SP James Shields allows two runs in loss to Mariners
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(7/1/15) Padres starting pitcher James Shields picked up his third loss of the season on Wednesday, despite a solid outing against the Mariners.
Shields threw 6 2/3 innings, allowed four hits and two earned runs before being pulled from the game. He held the Mariners scoreless through five innings, but a Robinson Cano home run in the sixth inning was his first mistake.
Shields (7-3) has a 4.14 ERA with 123 strikeouts and 35 walks in 104 1/3 innings of work this year.
Padres SP James Shields allows seven runs in Thursday's loss
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(6/25/15) Padres pitcher James Shields struggled during the first inning and he never recovered during Thursday's 13-8 loss to the Giants.
Shields allowed seven runs on nine hits over four innings of work. He also struck out seven and walked two. His biggest accomplishment was not giving up a home run. Shields is now 7-2 with a 4.24 ERA.
Shields is now winless in his last four starts and he has just one quality start during that time.
Padres SP James Shields struggles in loss on Friday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(6/20/15) Padres starter James Shields had a tough time on Friday against the Diamondbacks. The veteran right-hander allowed four runs on eight hits over six innings of work. He struck out five and walked a season-high four batters.
Shields was saddled with his first loss of the season in this one, as his ERA rose to 3.75. He got into trouble in the third inning, when he gave up three of the four runs, including back-to-back RBI doubles.
This was the second time in three starts that Shields allowed four earned runs. He'll try to turn things around in his next start, scheduled for Thursday in San Francisco.
Padres SP James Shields is dominant in no-decision
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(6/14/15) Padres starting pitcher James Shields left Sunday's game after a dominant performance with a 2-1 lead, but his team dropped the contest in 12 innings 4-2.
Shields allowed just one earned run over seven innings of work. He threw just 86 pitches, allowed five hits and struck out six batters in the no-decision.
Shields (7-0) has a 3.60 ERA with 104 strikeouts in 87 2/3 innings this season.
Padres P James Shields strikes out 6 in no-decision
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(6/10/15) Padres pitcher James Shields allowed five runs — four earned — in a no-decision during Tuesday night's 6-5 loss to the Braves.
"His stuff was fine," manager Bud Black said, per MLB.com. "And we've seen enough of James to know, that those of us who have watched every single one of his starts, he's had a very nice knack of getting out of jams and getting out of tough predicaments."
Shields walked one batter but did strike out six. He accounted for seven hits in 5 1/3 innings of work. Shields now has a 3.79 ERA for the season. Though the Padres lost, Shields did not receive credit for it and remains unbeaten at 7-0 for the year.
His next start is projected for Sunday against the Dodgers.
|2014 summary: For the most part, James Shields had a typical James Shields season for the Royals. He was highly durable, topping 200 innings for the eighth straight season and exceeding 220 innings for the fourth year in a row. Shields had even better control than usual, throwing 65 percent of his pitches for strikes and walking only 1.7 batters per nine innings. There was nothing wrong with his 14-8 record, 3.21 ERA and 1.18 WHIP, but his 7.1 K/9 ratio was Shields' lowest since 2009. That was depressed by a nine-start run after the All-Star break during which Shields struck out only 5.9 batters per nine innings.
Playing time status: Having signed with the Padres this offseason for four years at $75 million, Shields will bring his appetite for innings to PETCO Park, yet another pitcher-friendly home venue for the former Royal and Ray.
2015 outlook: Shields has had the good fortune of pitching in home parks that are tough on home run hitters, but generally, he's been homer-prone on the road (1.3 HR/9) over his career. Though that trend could continue, Shields should still be treated as a top 30 starter, as he could be a great help to owners in his home starts.
