When Kevin Millwood faces Andy Pettitte in Sunday's series finale at Yankee Stadium, their combined 403 career victories will be the highest win total of any two starting pitchers so far this season in the Majors.
Pettitte, making his season debut for the Yankees, ranks second among active pitchers with 240 wins. Millwood, still looking for his first victory for Seattle, is ninth on the active list with 163 wins. The previous high for two starters this year was 401 when the Rockies' Jamie Moyer (268) took on the Mets' Johan Santana (133) on April 29.
Going into Saturday's games, Jesus Montero led American League rookies in hits (31), runs (11) and total bases (51), was tied for first in home runs (five), doubles (five) and extra-base hits (10) and was four behind Oakland's Yoenis Cespedes in RBIs (17) in 30 games.
Right-hander Andrew Carraway, promoted from Double-A Jackson this week, made his Triple-A debut with Tacoma on Friday night and threw 7 1/3 scoreless innings with just one hit in the Rainiers' 4-0 victory over Albuquerque at Cheney Stadium.
