Milone gave up three runs on four hits and no walks while striking out six through six innings of relief work against the Twins on Wednesday. He did not factor into the decision.

After Gerson Bautista pitched 1.1 innings to open the game, Milone cruised through the next five innings before running into trouble in the eighth by allowing two runs. The Mariners have used an opener in front of Milone with success in his last two appearances, as the veteran southpaw owns a 3.24 ERA and a 7:1 K:BB over 11.1 innings in that pair of outings.
