At least the Colorado Rockies avoided the no-hitter. Unfortunately, the Rockies failed to do much else than that in a 4-0 loss to the Seattle Mariners. Kevin Millwood (2-4, 4.17 ERA) had a no-hitter against his 2011 team through 5.2 innings before Marco Scutaro wound up with an infield single, breaking up the event. Had Jordan Pacheco not singled up the middle during the next at-bat, Scutaro's hit might have been an error given the difficulty of the play and the bobble the fielder made on the play.
Oh, and Scutaro wound up trying to go from first to third on the play and was thrown out, ending the inning. And that was all the offense the Rockies mustered against Millwood, who finished his outing for a complete game, two-hit shutout.
Alex White (0-3, 5.09 ERA) pitched well over seven innings despite allowing three runs. Kyle Seager drove in two of the runs on a single and a sac fly (the latter a close play at the plate). Mike Carp drove in the other run on a home run. Outside of that, White struck out seven and walked zero batters.
John Jaso drove in the fourth Mariners run on a sacrifice fly against Matt Reynolds in the ninth inning.
The Rockies (15-23, 9-12 home) will have Christian Friedrich on the mound during Saturday's game at 2:10 p.m. MT.
