GAME: Mariners (51-61, 4th, AL West, – 14.5 GB) at Orioles (59-51, 2nd, AL East, – 4.5 GB). GAME #: 113. SERIES: 3rd of 3 games. MEETING: 6th (Orioles lead 4-1). WHEN: Wednesday, 4:05 p.m., Camden Yards, Baltimore, MD. PROBABLE PITCHERS: RHP Kevin Millwood (Seattle, 4-9, 4.01) vs. RHP Steve Johnson (Baltimore, 0-0, 4.50). STREAKS: Mariners L 3; Orioles W 4. TV: ROOT Sports, MLB TV. RADIO: KIRO 710 (Seattle), Mariners Radio Network.
Looking to avoid getting swept in a series for the first time since mid-June, the Mariners will call on Kevin Millwood to contain Baltimore’s offense in the third and final game of the three-game series Wednesday at Camden Yards. Millwood hardly inspires a lot of confidence. He has just one win since May 23 and is coming off a four-run, six-inning outing against the Yankees.
The Orioles originally had RHP Tommy Hunter scheduled to oppose Millwood. But they had Hunter warm up in the 14th inning Tuesday night after Baltimore burned through seven pitchers. Following Baltimore’s 8-7 win, the Orioles scratched Hunter from Wednesday’s start.
RHP Steve Johnson will get the ball instead, making his first career big league start. The 24-year old has made just one major league appearance, throwing two innings of relief last month. A closer look at Wednesday’s matchup:
MARINERS: RHP Kevin Millwood (409, 4.01 ERA,

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.

- 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 both 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 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 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.
- June 8: Kevin Millwood and five relievers collaborated for the 10th combined no-hitter in major league history in a 1-0 win over the Dodgers at Safeco Field. Millwood (6.0), Charlie Furbush (0.2), Stephen Pryor (0.1), Lucas Luetge (0.1), Brandon League (0.2), and Tom Wilhelmsen (1.0) tied the MLB record for most pitchers used in a no-hitter (Houston vs. the Yankees June 11, 2003). It marked the third no-hitter in Mariners history.
- June 18: Aaron Hill of Arizona hit for the cycle in the Diamondbacks’ 7-1 win over the Mariners. Hill singled in the first (Hector Noesi), tripled in the third (Noesi), doubled in the fifth (Noesi) and homered in the seventh (Shawn Kelley).
- June 19: Ichiro reached 2,500 hits (first-inning single) in the fourth-fewest games in major league history during a 12-9 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks. His 2,500th hit came in his 1,817th game. Al Simmons had 2,500 hits in 1,784 games, Ty Cobb in 1,790 and George Sisler in 1,808 . . .
