Shields' Strikes Out A-Rod; Rays' Fans Get Pizza
James Shields gets 11K to shutout Yankees 3-0, before 36,973 at Tropicana Field.
Thanks for striking out A-Rod! We get pizza from Kanes Furniture thanks to your strike out at the Trop.
Alex Rodriguez, pursuing his 600th career home run after being stuck on No. 599 for nine games, entered as a pinch-hitter in the top of the seventh with two outs and Curtis Granderon on first base. Rodriguez worked a full count, but Shields caught the All-Star third baseman looking at a 92-mph fastball to end the frame.
