An interview with Shields and Garza
Rays pitchers discuss their approach as series returns to Tampa
For James, does facing the same team in consecutive starts have any effect upon your approach?JAMES SHIELDS: I don't think it has. We're going to prepare the same way. We're going to try to make adjustments as we go and do what we've been doing all season long, so no, I don't think it has. James, how much are you looking forward to getting the ball tomorrow night? JAMES SHIELDS: I'm looking forward to it. I definitely didn't want it under the circumstances that happened last night, but Kaz pitched a great game last night. For him to go on short days and be able to do what he did last night was a great job, and hopefully I can do the same tomorrow.
