James Shields allowed four runs over five innings in the Royals' 9-8 extra-innings victory over the Athletics in Tuesday's Wild Card Game.
Shields served up a two-run shot to Brandon Moss in the first inning but then held the A's off the scoreboard for the next four frames. However, manager Ned Yost elected to pull him after a single and a walk to start off the sixth, and Yordano Ventura promptly gave up a gopher ball to Moss. The Royals battled back to tie it in the ninth and eventually won it on a walk-off single from Salvador Perez in the 12th. Shields will likely start Game 3 of the ALDS against the Angels on Sunday. Oct 1 - 1:34 AM
