SEATTLE (AP) - Kevin Millwood pitched six stingy innings to win for the first time in 5{ weeks and the Seattle Mariners beat the staggering Red Sox 2-1 on Wednesday night, handing Boston its eighth defeat in nine games.

        Dustin Ackley hit a two-run single in the fourth to back Millwood (5-12), who allowed four hits and one run in his first victory since July 28. The right-hander had gone 1-8 since May 21.

        Millwood walked three and struck out three. Tom Wilhelmsen worked the ninth for his 24th save in 27 opportunities.
