Millwood loses perfect game, shutout and now maybe game

Kevin Millwood retired the first 13 batters he faced. But number 14 through 19 weren't so easy.

Jose Guillen broke up the perfect game in the fifth against Millwood. Then the Kansas City Royals added four more singles by the next five batters, and suddenly Millwood was down 3-0.

The big play came with first and second and one out, when Chris Getz singled up the middle. Adam Jones came up throwing, and unleashed a bullet to Matt Wieters who blocked the plate perfectly as Alberto Callaspo slid in.

It was a bang-bang play – it was hard to make a determination even using the replays – but Callaspo was ruled safe. Scott Podsednik then dragged a bunt for a third run, and like that, Millwood (0-4) is on the hook for another loss.

The Orioles got one back on Luke Scott's eighth homer, but against Zack Greinke, a 2-run lead could be pretty safe.
