GAME: Mariners (24-31, 3rd, AL West, – 8.0 GB) at White Sox (30-23, 1st, AL Central, +1.5 GA. GAME #: 56. SERIES: 3rd of 3 games. MEETING: 6th (White Sox lead 4-1). WHEN: Sunday, 11:10 a.m., U.S. Cellular Field, Chicago. PROBABLE PITCHERS: RHP Kevin Millwood (Seattle, 3-4, 3.56) vs. LHP Chris Sale (Chicago, 6-2, 2.34). STREAKS: Mariners W 1; White Sox L 1. TV: ROOT Sports, MLB TV. RADIO: KIRO 710 (Seattle), Mariners Radio Network.
Saturday’s Mariners-White Sox game ran four hours, 16 minutes, the longest contest in terms of time the Mariners have played this season. But if the recent form of Sunday’s starting pitchers holds, the final in the three-game series could be a relatively quick affair.
Kevin Millwood has won three of his past four outings using an economy of pitches (99.2 average), while Chicago’s Chris Sale has notched three consecutive victories while fanning 28 en route, including 15 Tampa Bay Rays in his last start.
After today, Seattle will jet to Los Angeles for three with the Angels, who swept the Mariners in four games last week at Safeco Field.
After a day off Thursday, the Mariners will begin a 10-day, nine-game home stand against three interleague opponents, the Los Angeles Dodgers, San Diego Padres and San Francisco Giants.
A closer look at Sunday’s starters:
MARINERS: RHP Kevin Millwood (3-4, 3.56 ERA, 1.28 WHIP)
In his 16th major league season and first with the Mariners, Millwood is making his 11th start and second against the White Sox. Millwood sustained a 7-4 loss to Chicago April 22. He is coming off a no-decision against the Texas Rangers.
A native of Gastonia, NC., the 6-4, 230-pound Millwood was selected by the Atlanta Braves in the 11th round of the 1993 amateur draft.
Millwood made his major league debut July 14, 1997, winning in relief for the Braves against Philadelphia. During his career, Millwood pitched for the Braves (1997-02), Philadelphia (2003-04), Cleveland (2005), Texas (2006-09), Baltimore (2010) and Colorado (2011) before joining the Mariners.
Millwood twice won 18 games in a season, going 18-7 for the 1999 Braves and 18-8 for the 2002 Braves. Millwood led the National League in starts with 35 in 2000, led the NL in shutouts in 2003 with three, led the American League in ERA in 2005 at 2.86, and the AL in losses in 2010 with 16.
Millwood represented Atlanta in the 1999 All-Star Game.
During his American League career, Millwood made 24 starts against the Mariners, posting an 8-13 record with a 4.91 ERA.

2012 RECORDS / MILESTONES
- April 24: Catcher Miguel Olivo matched the franchise record when he was charged with three passed balls in a 7-4 win at Detroit. Jerry Narron let three balls get by him Oct. 4, 1980, and Jeff Clement did likewise Aug. 10, 2008 (Clement was catching knuckleballer R.A. Dickey).
- April 27: Michael Saunders joined Donnie Scott (April 29, 1985) and Jimmy Presley (April 8, 1986) as the only Mariners to hit two home runs in a game in the ninth inning or later (solo homer in the 9th, grand slam in the 10th).
- April 30: When Miguel Olivo and Jesus Montero homered, it marked the first time in franchise history that two players had homered in the same game as a catcher.
- May 2: Ichiro set a club record for most putouts by a right fielder in a nine-inning game, registering 10 in a 5-4 loss at Tampa.
- May 3: The Mariners featured a lineup at Tampa Bay that included seven left- handed hitters and two switch-hitters. It marked only the third time in club history that the Mariners used an all left-sided lineup. Others: Aug. 13, 1983 at California and Aug. 9, 1983 at Oakland.
- May 5: Combined one-hitter by Felix Hernandez and Steve Delabar vs. Minnesota was the 13th in Mariners history. Ten have been thrown by one pitcher, three combined. Most recent combined: Michael Pineda, Jeff Gray and Brandon League vs. Tampa, July 30, 2011. Most recent by one pitcher: Jarrod Washburn, July 6, 2009.
- May 9: When John Jaso batted leadoff against Detroit, it marked the first time since 1978 that a catcher had hit first for the Marines (Bob Stinson). Oddly, lefty Jaso led off against Tiger lefty Drew Smyly.
- May 8: Kevin Millwood’s 2-0 shutout marked his first in nearly nine years. He did not surrender his first hit until there were two outs in the sixth. Millwood’s gem marked only the fourth time in 1,440 games at Coors Field that an opposing pitcher held the Rockies to two hits or less while shutting them out. Millwood’s complete game also was the first by a Mariner in 2012.
- May 27: The pinch-hit grand slam allowed by Felix Hernandez to Alberto Callaspo marked just the sixth against the Mariners in 35 years, and the first since May 6, 1988 when Pat Sheridan of Detroit hit one off Mike Jackson.
- May 30: Mariners defeated Texas 21-8, just the third time in franchise history they have scored 20 or more runs in a game. The Mariners, with 20 hits, became the first team since 1880 to score 20 runs in a game in the same season it also go perfect-oed.
