BALTIMORE (AP) — Chris Tillman pitched seven innings of three-hit ball in a duel with Hisashi Iwakuma, Nick Markakis hit his first career leadoff homer and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Seattle Mariners 1-0 Sunday for their fourth straight series win.

Tillman (8-5) struck out six and walked none to earn his first win since June 27. A second-round draft pick by Seattle in 2006, Tillman is 6-0 in six career starts against the Mariners.

Newcomer Andrew Miller worked a perfect eighth and Zach Britton got three outs for his 23rd save.

Iwakuma (9-6) allowed one run, five hits and two walks in 7 2-3 innings. He struck out seven.

The right-hander lost on the road for the first time in 15 starts since July 4, 2013. He was 9-0 over that span.
