Mariners Millwood, Mariners spoil Pettitte's return

Quote:
The Yankees threw a welcome-back party for Andy Pettitte on Sunday, but Justin Smoak and Casper Wells had other ideas as they spoiled the reunion with two-run home runs in Seattle's 6-2 victory.

And while all the buzz in the Bronx was about Pettitte's return after a two-year absence, Seattle's own veteran, Kevin Millwood, wound up stealing the old-timers' show with seven innings of one-run ball for his first victory for the Mariners.

"It was almost like a throwback '99 game -- Pettitte vs. Millwood," said Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter. "But Kevin knows how to pitch. He doesn't throw too many balls straight. He works around the strike zone. We really couldn't get too much going."

Millwood, 37, allowed just three hits in helping the Mariners snap an eight-game road losing streak. It was his 164th career win, ninth on the Major League's active list, and first against the Yankees since 2009.
