ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -Kevin Millwood finally has a victory to show for his solid pitching this season.
Millwood (1-2) allowed one run over seven innings to lower his ERA to 1.29 and the Texas Rangers defeated Baltimore 3-1 in the first game of a doubleheader Thursday, ending the Orioles' six-game winning streak.
The Rangers' No. 1 starter was coming off a complete-game 2-1 loss, after losing the season opener despite giving up only two unearned runs.
Steve Trachsel (1-1) took the loss, giving up three runs and five hits over 6 1-3 innings.
Rays 7, Mariners 0
At St. Petersburg, Fla., Edwin Jackson allowed two hits in eight innings and the Rays ended a four-game losing streak.
A 15-game loser in 2007, Jackson combined with Trever Miller on a three-hitter and improved to 2-0. Eric Hinske homered off Miguel Batista (0-2) and Mike DiFelice drove in three runs.
Tampa Bay pitched a shutout for the first time since a 1-0 win at Boston on Sept. 10. Seattle was blanked for the first time since a 6-0 loss at Anaheim on Aug. 27.
