G133: Millwood beats Greinke 2-1 in KC pitchers’ duel

Even if I wasn’t writing short entries for this week, there wouldn’t be a ton to talk about with this one. It was the Kevin Millwood show. He dominated KC, giving up just one run in his 94 pitch complete game win. That makes two straight complete games for a Rangers pitcher – when the heck was the last time THAT happened?
Funny thing is that Zack Greinke pitched better than Millwood did because he allowed no earned runs. Neither did any other Royals’ pitcher. The two runs the Rangers got were both unearned.
You feel bad for a pitcher when they give up no earned runs, and still lose the game. But not enough to not feel glad about the performance Millwood gave. Was spectacular. There’s been some talk he might be traded to Boston before Sep 1, but I can’t see that happening. If he stays, one gets the feeling we wouldn’t see this Millwood in April, unfortunately. :(
