Thanks so much for all the comments from tonight's game. And also to those who welcomed me back personally, if only for a night.
Washburn was really mad about his mistake changeup that Miguel Olivo hit out of the yard for a home run.
The guy hasn't won at home since June 29 of last season and is now 0-7 at Safeco ever since.
"I'm too old and been playing too long to ever be happy with a loss, so no," Washburn said when asked if he was happy with his outing tonight.
Washburn was also impressed with Zack Greinke, who he said "looks like he's figured it out." The Royals, Washburn said, have a solid lineup 1 through 9, with speed, power and guys who provide tough at-bats.
Another note from tonight: Ichiro has a 25-game hitting streak against KC dating to April 14, 2005. He had two hits tonight.
