Washburn Too Much for Royals

Jerrod Washburn dominated the Royals with a 2 hit shutout.

Jarrod Washburn didn’t allow a hit until the 9th inning and shortstop David Eckstein had 4 hits and 2 RBI at Edison Int’l Field where the Anaheim Angels beat the Kansas City Royals by the score of 8 to 0. Washburn(8-0) was virtually untouchable. He didn’t give up much, just 2 hits and 3 walks in 9 innings lowering his ERA to 1.33. The left-handed Washburn lost his no-hit bid when Carlos Beltran singled with one out in the 9th inning. Anaheim totaled 11 hits on the night. The losing pitcher was Darrell May(3-1). He was knocked around, surrendering 5 runs in 4 innings. When questioned about his counterpart after the game, May was lavish in his praise, ‘It was obvious very early on that we were going to be in for a long night. Washburn brought his ‘A’ game with him – he had good stuff and was able to spot it perfectly. He probably only made one or two bad pitches the entire game!
