Shield your eyes: Twins slow Royals’ post-break surge

The Twins simply battered James Shields while coasting to an easy victory behind a magnificent performance from Andrew Albers over 81/3 innings. Shields, 6-8, gave up seven runs in six innings in what easily marked his worst start of the year. He surrendered three homers, including two in the first inning, committed a throwing error on a pickoff and balked home a run.
