ST PETERSBURG --  James Shields left with two innings to go on Wednesday and came away a 4-3 loser.
In the process, Tampa Bay's "Complete-Game James" saw his string of consecutive complete games snapped at three, thanks to a hanging curveball and not enough offense as the Reds took the rubber game of the three-game series in front of 25,968 at Tropicana Field.

************************************************
China announced plans to count panda droppings to determine the population of the endangered species. (I'll bet your job isn't looking so bad right about now.)
************************************************










CHICAGO --  To paraphrase the question that presidential candidates ask voters, are the Giants better off now than they were a year ago?
Mostly, yes, though Wednesday's 2-1 loss to the Chicago Cubs reminded San Francisco of the offensive flaws that have marred an otherwise impressive followup to last year's World Series conquest.
