Shields struck out five, ending the game with a 4.26 ERA and 1.46 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Shields, making his second start since coming off the disabled list for a strained right lat, allowed three home runs in the first three innings. His highlight was notching his 2,000th career strikeout to end the second inning.

Shields struck out three, ending the game with a 2.42 ERA and 1.21 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Making his first start in two months, Shields held the Blue Jays to one run over the first five innings but surrendered a game-tying two-run homer to Russell Martin in the sixth. The veteran right-hander could fare better in a potentially more favorable matchup with the visiting A's on Saturday.

The right-hander is scheduled to start Sunday at Toronto after being sidelined the past two months because of a strained right back muscle.
Analysis: Shields said Wednesday he feels ''pretty good'' and is ''ready to rock'' after three rehab starts for Triple-A Charlotte. He threw 90 pitches, allowing two runs and six hits over five innings, on Tuesday. Sidelined since April 16, Shields is 1-0 with a 1.62 ERA in three starts after a rough first season in Chicago.

Analysis: That outing must have felt particularly good for Shields, who went 4-12 with a 6.77 ERA in 22 starts for the White Sox after he was acquired from San Diego.
