CHICAGO -- Finally, everything came together for James Shields.The beleaguered right-hander pitched six effective innings for his first win in two months, Justin Morneau and Carlos Sanchez each hit a two-run homer and the Chicago White Sox beat the Tampa Bay Rays 7-1 on Monday night.Shields (6-18) allowed one run and seven hits, using six strikeouts to help wriggle out of several jams and lift Chicago win its third straight.The right-hander hadnt won since July 26, when he pitched scoreless ball into the eighth against the crosstown Cubs. Shields was 0-6 in his previous 10 starts and is 4-11 since a trade to Chicago from San Diego.In this one, Shields had solid command and reached back to make some big pitches in tight spots. He was backed by four double plays and ample offense as the White Sox pulled away.I got ahead of hitters and I was throwing some real good pitches actually that they were just spitting on, working the count, said Shields, who threw 108 pitches. They got my pitch count up early, but I ended up grinding it out.Ending the drought felt good, too.I had a few chances my last few starts to get some wins, but sometimes those things happen, Shields said. Im just trying to finish the season strong right now.Morneau and Omar Narvaez each had two hits. Jose Abreu had two hits and an RBI.Tampa Bays Drew Smyly (7-12) allowed three runs and seven hits over five innings in losing for the first time since July 18 at Colorado.I felt that I pitched better than the box score, Smyly said.The Rays couldnt cash in against Shields, and then four Chicago relievers combined for three scoreless innings as Tampa Bay left 10 on base.Just a frustrating game on all fronts, Rays manager Kevin Cash said. We have some opportunities that we didnt make the most of, for sure.(Shields) mixed (pitches) really well. Its just kind of unfortunate that he put it together against us tonight.Curt Casali drove in the lone run off Shields with a single in the fourth. Jaff Decker had three hits for Tampa Bay, which has dropped four straight and seven of eight.The White Sox bullpen pitched scoreless ball thanks in part to Abreu throwing out Mikie Mahtook at the plate in the eighth.Shields began his career with Tampa Bay in 2006 and pitched seven seasons with the Rays. Hes 4-11 with the White Sox, who acquired him from San Diego on June 4.Morneau homered in the seventh and Sanchez connected in the eighth.OH, KsThe Rays struck out only six times Monday after becoming just the fifth big league team to strike out 23 or more times in a game in a 3-2, 10-inning loss to Boston on Sunday.Tampa Bay manager Kevin Cash, a backup catcher over eight seasons with five teams, was asked if he thought of picking up a bat himself. He quipped, I would have fit right in.TRAINERS ROOMRays: CF Kevin Kiermaier sat out after being hit by a pitch on the left wrist in the second inning of Sundays game and leaving.

The jockey who rode the last mare to win two Cox Plates has thrown his support behind Winx to achieve the feat at Moonee Valley.Sunlines jockey Greg Childs, who is now retired, says the Chris Waller-trained Winx is the deserved favourite and the horse hed want to be riding in Saturdays race, which is billed as a showdown between her and Hartnell.Sunline won her first Cox Plate in 1999 and won by seven lengths a year later. She was also second in 2001 and fourth in her final start in 2002.Winx is striving to become the fourth mare to win two Cox Plates, with Flight and Tranquil Star in the 1940s the others.Victory on Saturday would put Winx in rare air.And then the following year would even be bigger, Childs said.Shes the up and coming champ, and she needs to win this to be put on the same mantle as Sunline.Childs doesnt have her in that category yet.She needs to win this and she needs to win overseas, he said.Sunline won major races in her homeland, New Zealand, as well as Australia, and was successful in a Hong Kong Mile and placed in Dubai on World Cup night.To be a champion, youve got to win intternationally, Childs said.ddddddddddddWinx is chasing her 13th straight win and ninth Group 1 trophy on Saturday, having won last years Cox Plate by almost five lengths.Winx deserves to be the favourite, Childs said.Shes a superstar in the making. And shes my tip because shes a proven galloper around Moonee Valley.Not a lot of horses can improve around a corner and win. Shes proven she can do that where Hartnell, even though he has raced well there, he hasnt won there.So thats the advantage she has over him. But tactics are going to be important because there is no natural leader.Id want to be on Winx and Id be wanting to be in the first three, because the tempo of the race might be slow.And if its fast you can get back a little bit more.But whatever it is, Id rather be in front of Hartnell than behind him.Many are anticipating a classic contest between two horses seemingly at the top of their games.I hope it is, Childs said.Like everyone, we just want a two-horse war.
