Royals manager Ned Yost’s confidence in staff ace James Shields not shaken

In his four postseason starts, James Shields hasn’t fooled many hitters. In 19 innings he has surrendered 15 runs, all earned, translating to a 7.11 ERA. But Shields is the Royals’ World Series game-five starter on Sunday, and manager Ned Yost almost defiantly defended the pitcher who opened the American League Wild Card Game against the A’s and AL Championship Series against the Orioles.

This was the Royals kind of game; speed, pitching and defense

This was just the kind of ballgame the Royals needed; a low-scoring affair where speed, pitching and defense would make the difference. The Royals offense manufactured a run in the first inning and took a lead they’d never give up, the pitching held the Giants to two runs and the defense was making plays all over the field. Friday night in Game Three the Kansas City Royals beat the San Francisco Giants 3-2 and took a 2-1 lead in the World Series.
