    Millwood tosses three-hitter; Ohka falters in 7th

    MONTREAL (AP) -- Kevin Millwood pitched a three-hitter and Bobby Abreu homered right after Philadelphia broke up Tomo Ohka's no-hit bid in the seventh inning, leading the Phillies over the Montreal Expos 2-0 Wednesday night.

    Millwood (10-6) threw his second shutout of the season. The other one came April 27 when he pitched a no-hitter against San Francisco.

    Millwood held Montreal to an infield single by Jose Vidro leading off the second through the first seven innings. He struck out six and walked four in his fourth career shutout and third complete game of the season.

    Ohka (7-9) actually outpitched Millwood through six innings. He retired 18 of the first 19 batters, allowing only David Bell's two-out walk in the second.

    Placido Polanco led off the Phillies' seventh and Ohka got ahead of him. Polanco's bat flew into the stands after he swung and missed, falling behind 0-2 in the count.

    The fan who caught the bat didn't return it, and Polanco returned to the plate with another bat. He later hit a slow roller and the ball bounced off third baseman Edwards Guzman's glove into foul territory.

    Official scorer Michel Spinelli quickly ruled the play a hit, a decision which drew a disappointed moan from the Olympic Stadium crowd of 7,005.

    Abreu followed by hitting his 14th home run. He hit a three-run homer the previous night in a 13-6 win over the Expos.

    Ohka gave up three hits in eight innings. He struck out five and walked two.

    On June 29, Ohka held Toronto hitless until two outs in the seventh inning, when Carlos Delgado doubled.

    Ohka pitched eight innings of one-hit ball on April 11 against the New York Mets.

    Montreal mounted the only scoring threat through the first six when they loaded the bases with two out in the second.

    Vidro reached on an infield hit, Wil Cordero drew a one-out walk and Michael Barrett walked with two outs. Millwood got Ohka to ground to first baseman Tomas Perez to escape the jam.

    Game notes

    Millwood was 2-5 in his previous eight starts.
