Royals’ James Shields passed kidney stone during ALCS but is ready for World Series

As the Royals wrapped up their first berth in the World Series since 1985 last week, James Shields was grappling with the effects of a kidney stone, the pitcher told The Star on Monday. Shields will face Giants lefty Madison Bumgarner after 11 days off in game one at Kauffman Stadium (7:07 p.m. Tuesday on Fox). One reason for the length of Shields’ layoff was his condition, which kept him from pitching game four of the ALCS.
