Shields sets mark for futility
James Shields allowed eight runs while recording only five outs in the White Sox 13-2 loss to the Indians yesterday. Shields has now allowed seven or more runs before the end of the third inning in each of his last four starts. That is the longest streak of its kind for any pitcher in major-league history.
I guess it just goes to show that anyone can have a bad game, a bad month, a bad streak, or a bad year!
