For much of this early season, Kevin Millwood has pitched good enough to win, but his offense has failed him.

The Orioles' offense continued its slumber with Millwood making a start, but this time Millwood can't feel cheated.

He allowed just eight base runners in 6 2/3 innings, but five scored. The punchless Mariners hit three homers against Millwood, who had previously allowed seven homers total in his first seven starts for the Orioles.

He gave up home runs to Ichiro Suzuki (two-run shot in the fifth) and solo knocks to Mike Sweeney (to lead off the sixth) and Michael Saunders (two outs in the seventh).

Suzuki, Sweeney and Saunders had one homer among them before Thursday.

Millwood's final line: 6 2/3 IP, 7 H, 5 ER, 1 BB, 5 K, 3 HR
