Shields Not Surrendering

Watching how a pitcher pitches after getting roughed up a bit tells me a lot about what kind of pitcher he is.

James Shields started for the Rays tonight and he gave up four consecutive singles in the third before Mike Jacobs added a three-run homer to put the Royals up 6-2. What has been impressive is how Shields has responded to the setback.

Rather than hang his head, Shields has continued to try and get people out. The Rays might not come back, they are now down 6-4, but Shields’ refusal to quit has kept his team in the game.
