Phillies-White Sox preview

CHICAGO -- James Shields will try again to shake out of a 11-week funk as he takes the mound for the Chicago White Sox in Wednesday's finale of a two-game interleague series with the Philadelphia Phillies.

The 34-year-old right-hander, acquired in a June 4 trade with the San Diego Padres, is 5-15 with a 5.98 ERA this season. In 14 starts since joining Chicago he's 2-8 and gave up seven runs on eight hits -- including three home runs over 4 2/3 innings -- in last Saturday's 9-0 loss to the Oakland A's.

"There's times where a team will hit him around and he's been able to fight his way back," White Sox manager Robin Ventura said. "The roughest stretch was when he first got here and he seemed to calm those waters and figure it out. He has the ability to do that."
