Lack of run support dooms Shields as Royals fall to Tigers 4-1

James Shields entered Sunday’s series finale against Detroit with the fourth-lowest run support in the American League. From that standpoint, the Royals’ 4-1 loss to the Tigers shouldn’t come as any great surprise. Shields turned in his 16th quality start of the season but fell to 3-5 in those games thanks to a sputtering Royals offense.
