Nothing new early at Camden Yards, where veteran pitcher Kevin Millwood once again struggled in the first inning.

In his first start since he lasted just one inning July 5 in Detroit, Millwood threw 34 pitches and surrendered three runs to the visiting Minnesota Twins, with Delmon Young providing the big hit.

On a 3-2 count, Millwood hung a 85 mph slider that Young ripped to the gap in left-center field for a three-run double.

Millwood has allowed two runs in the first inning in nine of his past 10 starts for the Birds.

Down 3-0, the Orioles hitters responded by making three outs on five pitches against Carl Pavano. So after his nightmare first, Millwood is right back on the mound.
