Mariners Hold off Blue Jays

TORONTO (AP) - Miguel Olivo hit a solo home run, Kevin Millwood won consecutive starts for the first time since May and the Seattle Mariners beat the Toronto Blue Jays 3-2 on Wednesday night.

Edwin Encarnacion hit his 39th homer, a two-run drive into the second deck, but it wasn't enough to keep Ricky Romero from losing his 13th straight decision.

Millwood (6-12), who entered 1-6 in nine career starts at Toronto, allowed two runs and two hits in five innings to win back-to-back starts for the first time since winning three straight from May 13-23. The right-hander, who walked one and struck out three, has won just three of 19 starts since.

Shawn Kelley and Josh Kinney each got four outs for Seattle, and Tom Wilhelmsen earned his 26th save in 29 chances.
