SEATTLE (CBS Seattle/AP) — Veteran right-hander Kevin Millwood made his first start of the spring Thursday in the Mariners’ 10-3 win over the Cubs.

It was a solid performance for Millwood — three innings, four hits, one earned run on Alfonso Soriano’s homer and three strikeouts.

The Mariners grabbed the early lead when they scored four earned runs off Cubs closer Carlos Marmol in the fourth inning, including second baseman Dustin Ackley’s three-run home run.

Ackley has had a great start to the spring, hitting .455 (5 for 11) with two doubles, a triple and a home run.
