With the score tied in the eighth inning, Joe Maddon showed some faith in James Shields by leaving him in to face Nick Swisher despite a lead-off walk to Derek Jeter and despite having already thrown 110 pitches. And Maddon’s move paid off when Shields induced a 3-6-3 double-play from Swisher. And then, with a little help from Robinson Cano not running out of the box, Elliot Johnson recovered on a muffed ball and got the runner at first.

That’s when Shields unleashed his fist-pump of fury…
