James Shields has been known throughout his career as Big Game James. On Wednesday against the defending World Series champion San Francisco Giants, it was Five Frames James. The San Diego Padres’ ace left with a 1-0 lead after throwing 96 pitches in five innings, and the bullpen promptly gave up the lead, with the Giants winning 7-1. Brandon Belt hit a tying solo home run in the sixth inning and Buster Posey hit a go-ahead, two-run double in the seventh for the Giants. “I was still good to go,” said Shields, adding he understood manager Pat Murphy’s decision. “I had plenty more in the tank. I’ve been in that situation plenty of times in my career and I definitely had more in the tank.” Murphy said it was a combination of pitch count and Shields labouring in a few innings.
