Seattle came back from a 7-0 deficit to take the lead, then watched its bullpen implode in what became a 17-12 loss to the Kansas City Royals.
Seattle plays Milwuakee in Maryvale in a 1:05 p.m. game that will be broadcast on KIRO. Probable starting pitchers: Ryan Rowland-Smith vs. Manny Parra.
Starter Jarrod Washburn followed a terrible game by Carlos Silva, but threw 80 pitches over his six innings, and after allowing seven runs in the first two, shut Kansas City out over the next four. Not pretty, but gritty.
