Shields goes distance in Rays' 8-0 win

Posted: Updated:
OAKLAND (AP) -

James Shields pitched a three-hitter, B.J. Upton drove in two runs and the Tampa Bay Rays broke out of their prolonged offensive slump to beat the Oakland Athletics 8-0 on Tuesday night.
 
Sam Fuld had three hits, Upton added two and six different players drove in runs for the Rays. Tampa Bay went into the game last in the majors in hitting and had scored only nine runs in its previous four games before knocking A's starter Tommy Milone around for two runs in the second and three in the fifth.
 
That was all Shields (9-7) needed to secure his seventh career shutout.
 
He gave up a one-out single to Chris Carter in the second, a leadoff single to Jemile Weeks in the fourth and a two-out single to George Kottaras in the eighth.
