That brought up A.J. Ellis and Seattle turned to one-time closer Brandon League, recently demoted from that role. League got Ellis to hit a sinking liner to left and defensive replacement Chone Figgins made a running catch. His strong throw home kept pinch-runner Alex Castellanos at third base.

League then struck out Tony Gwynn Jr. to end the inning.

The previous no-hitter against the Dodgers was thrown by Atlanta’s Kent Mercker on April 8, 1994. Weaver and Jose Arredondo combined to hold the Dodgers hitless for eight innings in a 1-0 Dodgers win in 2008, but that game doesn’t count as a no-hitter under the rules baseball adopted in 1991 because the Angels only had to pitch eight innings.

Seattle’s run came in the seventh inning thanks to a two-out rally started by Suzuki’s infield single. He stole second, Dustin Ackley walked and Seager came through with his 23rd two-out RBI of the season. His line-drive single off reliever Scott Elbert (0-1) glanced off the glove of a leaping Gordon and dropped in left field.

The 37-year-old Millwood also took a no-hitter into the sixth inning May 18 at Colorado and finished with a two-hitter. He retired his first 12 batters Friday before a leadoff walk to Rivera in the fifth.

The closest the Dodgers came to a hit off Millwood was Gordon’s bunt leading off the fourth. Seager ran in from third for a fine barehanded pickup and threw out Gordon by a half-step.

“At that point of the game, it was still so early,” Seager said.

Millwood struck out six and threw 68 of Seattle’s 114 pitches.

NOTES: Seattle ace Felix Hernandez has been pushed back and will start Tuesday against San Diego. Hernandez has been bothered by a sore back. … It was the Dodgers‘ fourth game in Seattle and first since 2000.
