James Shields driven from Game 1 in the fourth inning

HardballTalk

Royals manager Ned Yost has gone to the bullpen early in Game 1 of the World Series, removing starter James Shields after he surrendered an RBI single to Giants designated hitter Michael Morse in the top of the fourth inning. It was the fourth run of the game for the visiting Giants, who then plated their fifth run of the night when Gregor Blanco drew a bases-loaded walk off Kansas City reliever Danny Duffy.

San Francisco will carry a 5-0 lead into the bottom of the fourth inning at a stunned Kauffman Stadium.

All five of the Giants’ runs were charged to “Big Game James,” who now has a 5.74 ERA in 53 1/3 career postseason innings and a 7.11 ERA through 19 innings in this year’s tournament. Not a good look for the impending free agent.
