Complete game of the day
RHP James Shields, though in a losing effort, threw his seventh complete game of the season, matching the most by any pitcher at the All-Star break over the past 21 seasons, done most recently by the Phillies' Roy Halladay in 2010.
Historical note of the day
Sunday was the second 1-0 game in Rays history decided by an error. They won the other, April 23, 2000, at Anaheim, when Fred McGriff, above, scored on an error by Angels 2B Adam Kennedy.
Accomplishment of the day
CF B.J. Upton is the first player in franchise history to have 15 homers and 20 steals by the All-Star break, and the first to lead the team in both categories.
