| No Comments | No TrackBacks

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- James Shields pitched a complete-game four-hitter, and the White Sox could muster no more than A.J. Pierzynski's RBI single for run production in their 2-1 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday night. The Sox have lost six straight games.

Shields struck out nine as the Rays won for the seventh time in eight games.

David Price and Joel Peralta combined on a four-hitter to shut out the Sox the previous night.

John Danks (0-2) gave up two runs and seven hits in seven innings for the Sox. He struck out five.

"You have to tip your cap to Shields,'' Danks said.

"The attention needs to be on Shields. He was as good as it gets. That's all you can say. It stinks to get out-pitched but it happens and I'll get ready to go Sunday in Detroit.''
