Shields strikes out 12, Royals sweep Astros 5-1

HOUSTON (AP) James Shields kept the Houston Astros off-balance all night.

Then late in Thursday's 5-1 win, the Kansas City ace really heated up. He struck out the side in the sixth and did the same in the seventh before striking out the first batter in the eighth to make it seven in a row. Astro after Astro simply watched the pitches zip past them - five players in that span struck out looking.

Shields finished with 12 strikeouts in eight innings as the Royals completed a three-game sweep of the Astros.
