James Shields lasted just three-plus innings Tuesday against the Giants, allowing five runs on seven hits and a walk in the World Series Game 1 loss.
The Giants jumped on Shields early with two singles and an RBI double after the first four hitters of the game. Shields caught a break when Buster Posey was easily thrown out at home on a silly send from third base coach Tim Flannery, but the next batter, Hunter Pence, smashed a two-run shot over the center field wall. Pence also scored in the fourth after a leadoff double on a Michael Morse single that chased Shields. The Royals’ ace now has a 7.11 ERA over four starts this postseason. Despite Shields' struggles, Royals manager Ned Yost said after the game that the righty would get the ball in a potential Game 5. Oct 21 - 11:55 PM
