PETERSBURG, FUl(AP)  Shields is rat king up com-|)li't(' games for the Tampa Bay Kays, and it's no act ident.  Th(' All-Star right-hander knows vvh('n to use his best pitch.  Shielfis tossed a four-hitter for his niajor league-best I Hh com-plet(' game and the Rays beat the AI West*leadingT('xas Kang('rs 5-1 on Monday.  "H(''s got a good changeup,  Astros drop 4th straight in loss to Pirates  PfTTSBURGH(AP)  Houston manager Brad Mills knows limmy Paredes was |ust trying to make a play. Mills hopes (‘xp('ri(‘nce will t<\K h his young infielder sometinK's it's OK to hold up altf'r f\ir('(ies was caught in a rundown l)i'tw(*en se( one I anil third in the ninth lo sncill out a rally in a M loss to the Pirates.  'You lik(> the aggressive-nc'ss hut at the sam«* time you like to pick up that iearning curv('," Mills said. "Sonietimes there's things you'd like to go through, and hopetully we're going through those now and we don I have to continue to go through th(> same things."  Ihe Astros had runners on tirst .ind setond with one out wht'n Matt Downs hit ii shallow llyball lo (enter that (Iroppi'd in tor <» hit. Houston's ( hris lohnson held up at third, but Paredes didn't r('ali/e Johnson had stopp('d until he was iO ftrt past second. Pittsburgh shoitstop Konny ( edeno easiK tagg('d out Paredes and Piratt's ( loser loel Han-rahan got lake Shu( k to tly out to right and pi( k up his i")th save.  "iP.iredc'si knew that he was a tying run, and I'm sur(' that he's thinking, 'Man, I (.in get to third here,' or whatever, and it kind ot bJocked out every thing <'lse," Mills said. "He was )ust overanxious, you know, you hate to say it but that's an experien(e thing that s going to keep coming a little bit with him."  ih(' Astros flow hav(> two lOLir-ganie winning streaks and two tour-game losing streaks in the last three w(‘(.'ks, another symptom ot a t('<im learning on the fly. Yet Mills was impressed by the play of rookie right-hander Henry Sosa (2-^), who gave up two runs over six innings in miserable conditions.  Ihe gijme was delayt'd 56 miiuit('s by r.un then playt'd in a dovvnf)our that b(*came ste.idier as the afternoon progressed.  Cancer can't keep Buddy Ryan from Cowboys vs. Jets  IKVINCi lAi’) — Not even t iiiK (T surgery can kt'p former NFL coa( h Buddy Ryan from being in the stands wlu'n his twin sons coach against each other Sunday night in the prime-time op(‘ner b(>tween the Dallas (Owboys and New York lets.  ( owboys defensiv(' coordinator Rob Ryan said Mon-dtiy his da(J was diagnosc'd last week with a form of cancer "iti his gland that's right through his neck." Brother Rex, the jets coach, said through a team s[)okesman that it was the (Wrotid gland, the largest of the s.  period," Rangers slugger fosh Hamilton said.  "So, when you've got a good changeup, 90 (mph) looks mor(‘ like 96.  "He l(K)ks so g(K)d to hit, an(J it drops off the tahle. H(‘ throws it and kwps it out of th(> strike zone. Makes it |fK)k like it's going to b(‘ in the strike zone."  Shields (14-10) stru( k out six and walked two. The only run ht*  allowed (ame home on Michael Young's grounder with one out in the ninth.  "Whether they're stressful innings or not, I (ondition myself ^o that dc'ep into ds said.  Shields also Ikh ame th(‘ first AI pitcher since Randy Johnson in I9‘H to have at least 200 strikeouts and 10 (ompletc' g.imes in th(' sam<' season when he fanncnl  enough lo g.mies," Shie  Hamilton in the first.  The only other 200-strikeout, 10-complete game pitcher since 2000 was CC Sabathia, who accomplished the feat whi'n he pitrh(*d for Cleveland and Mil-waukw during the 2008 season.  "This year, the guy's bcH’h abk* to finish whatever he starts," T(>xas manager Ron Washington said. "We haven't been able to figure him out."  TSR TEAM GOING TO FLORIDA  LAURA McKENZIE | Herald /eiluitq  Jay Svoboda took top honors in the Intermediate Wakeboard division during the Thursday Showdowns a! Texas Ski Ranch Svoboda will compete at this weeketid's National Points Championship in Tampa, Fla.  Making A SPLASH  23 from NB going to championship  By Chris Hoffman  Itie Herald-Zeitung  Seven months of hard work. Hours upon hours on the cal)k‘ working on all the movt's and all th(' trie ks nt‘t>di'd to go u[) against the best. It all comes down to this.  Now it is on to Fampa.  Fwenty-three riders from N('w Braunfels in seven divisions make up Team TSR (Texas Ski Ranch) that will go up against over 200 riders from parks across the country for the National Points (;ham()ionship at McCormicks Wake Park in Tampa, Fla. beginning Friday.  The championship will be lh(' largest cable wakeboard ev('nl ever held in the United States.  Team TSR dominated the competition at its home park in 2010, as the New Braunfels s(juad t'dged Mc Cormick's 2,46S-1,8()S in the team competition, while Orlando Watersf)orts Complex (OWC) rounded out tht' toj) thrcn* with 1, Í50 points.

Cameron said that being abj(> to !)(' adaptable to any riding con dition is what s<'parates a good  rider from a grc'at ridc'r when it comt's to a (ompetition ot this size and this wide range ot tak'ni.  "That is the one thing I ck)n'l think peo[)le know is that every park IS unicjue," C ameron said. "Fvery park has a different leel, and you have to Ix' able to adjust.  "That is what I love about this sport. It tests your skill at everything.  "You have to be good at rails, ki( kers and aerial tricks. And bi'ing able to adjust to any park and condition is what niiikes a great cable rider."

"So if it is, so be it."  Stoops stop()ed short on s[)eculating what might happ('n or saying what he prefers. Oklahoma president David Boren said just before' the season's opening wc'i'k-erid that the Sooners would decid(' within the next three wc'eks, if not sooner, if thc'y would leave the Big 12 for another conft'renc e "As long as we get to play.
