The Seattle Mariners were able to win the rubber game of their three-game series against the Boston Red Sox on Wednesday night at Safeco Field. The Mariners will head into a much-needed off day on Thursday following the 2-1 win.

Starter Kevin Millwood had a solid start, going six innings and allowing one run on four hits and three walks. Millwood finally picks up that elusive fifth win of the season and Tom Wilhelmsen recorded his 24th save.
