James Shields allowed just two hits in eight scoreless innings against the White Sox on Monday, but got stuck with a no-decision in Kansas City's 2-1, 10-inning loss.

Shields struck out nine and walked two as he lowered his ERA and WHIP to 2.52 and 0.96, respectively. Shields is doing exactly what he was acquired to do, but has just a 2-2 record to show for it through seven starts thanks to the Royals' uneven offense. Big Game James will bring a 48/12 K/BB ratio (50 IP) into his Saturday start against the Yankees.
