Kevin Millwood does what it takes to win as Mariners salvage finale in Bronx

Kevin Millwood won for the first time since Sept. 25 of last season and earned every bit of it, getting two timely double-plays against Derek Jeter and making key pitches when he had to. The Mariners added a pair of huge insurance runs in the ninth on two walks and a bobbled infield single and throwing error by Yankees reliever Clay Rapada.
So, a 6-2 win by the Mariners to salvage one of three here.
Millwood went seven innings, allowed just three hits and avoided mistakes when they could have proved lethal. That’s the difference between a winning outing and decent stats and the only way you take games in this building.
Casper Wells had a pretty good all-wound day as well, with the homer, the infield single off Rapada and a nice throw to nab Nick Swisher on an attempted triple in the bottom of the ninth.
