Tampa Bay's Shields throws 11th complete game

James Shields pitched a four-hitter
for his major league-best 11th complete game and the Tampa Bay Rays
beat the AL West-leading Texas Rangers 5-1 on Monday.
Shields (14-10) struck out six and walked two. The only run he
allowed scored on Michael Young's grounder with one out in the
ninth.
Shields also became the first AL pitcher since Randy Johnson in
1993 to have at least 200 strikeouts and 10 complete games in the
same season when he fanned Josh Hamilton in the first.
The only other 200-strikeout, 10-complete game pitcher since
2000 was CC Sabathia, who accomplished the feat when the
left-hander pitched for Cleveland and Milwaukee during the 2008
season.
