Shields shuts down White Sox, Royals win 5-1

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (Associated Press) -

James Shields tossed seven shutout innings and rookie David Lough homered and drove in another run to lead the Kansas City Royals to a 5-1 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Friday night.

The Royals (49-51) have won four straight and 6 of 8 since the All-Star break. The White Sox (40-60) have lost 4 of 5.

Shields (5-7) allowed eight hits and walked two but faced only one real scoring threat, working out of a bases-loaded jam in the sixth inning.

The veteran right-hander lowered his ERA to 3.09 and has been especially effective on the road, where he improved to 4-3 with a 2.50 ERA in 12 starts.

Chicago starter Jose Quintana (5-3) allowed two runs on six hits in seven innings to pick up the loss.
