TORONTO (AP) -- James Shields pitched a four-hitter for his second consecutive complete game, Ben Zobrist hit a two-run homer and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Toronto Blue Jays 2-0 on Sunday.
Shields (2-1) struck out seven, walked two and lowered his ERA to 2.35. The Rays won for the 10th time in 14 games following a 1-8 start.
Shields threw just 95 pitches, wrapping up the game in a brisk 2 hours, 5 minutes. The right-hander also threw a four-hitter against the Chicago White Sox last Tuesday.
It's the third time in Rays history that a pitcher has won back-to-back complete games. Rolando Arrojo did it in 1998 and Albie Lopez did it in 2000.
Ricky Romero (1-3) lost despite striking out 10 in seven innings.
