      James Shields leads the Royals past the Padres

      James Shields scattered seven hits over seven innings, Eric Hosmer drove in a season-high four runs and the Kansas City Royals beat the San Diego Padres 8-0 Wednesday. The Royals scored three times in the first and that was plenty for Shields (4-3). He struck out four, walked two and threw 118 pitches. Two relievers finished for the Royals. The Padres were shut out for a major league-high sixth time this season. San Diego has lost six of eight overall. Andrew Cashner (2-5) lasted a season-low four innings.
