--LHP Jarrod Washburn continued his long run of quality pitching in Kauffman Stadium on Thursday with seven innings in which he allowed two runs, one earned. That lowered his career ERA in Kansas City to 2.20, but he took a 3-1 loss, just his second loss in K.C. against six career wins.

--RF Ichiro Suzuki had three hits and a walk Thursday, continuing a long stretch of success in Kansas City. He's hit safely in 22 of his last 23 games in Kansas City, going 42-for-88 (.473).
