James Shields became the seventh of what you would call notable Rays starters to face their old team.

Shields is definitely the most notable with Scott Kazmir being the second.

Shields overcame a rough first inning Tuesday to earn the win in the Royals 8-2 win against the Rays. Vintage Shields – he retired the final 13 batters he faced.

Here is what the seven notable former Rays or Devil Rays did in their first game against their old team:

James Shields, KC (4/30/13) 7 IP, 5 H, 2 ER … KC 8-2
Scott Kazmir, LAA (5/11/10) 5 IP, 7 H, 3 ER … Rays 3-2
Edwin Jackson, DET (9/6/09) 8 IP, 6 H, 3 ER … DET 5-3
Mark Hendrickson (6/14/08) 5 IP, 4H, 3 ER … Rays 4-1
Paul Wilson CIN (6/10/03) 5 2/3 IP, 8 H, 2 ER … TOR 5-3
