Goals from Jamie Proctor (2), David Ball (2), Joe Newell and Anthony Forde, all in the first-half.
The Millers were on the back foot when a slide rule pass released Danny Harris who rounded Richard O'Donnell to level for the home side.
Rotherham restored their advantage on 17 minutes, Newell again turned provider to cross from the left for Forde to convert from close range.
It was soon three for the Millers when David Ball motored into the penalty area slotting under Parkgate ‘keeper Hunter.
Parkgate stuck to the task and pulled one back just before the half-hour mark. Ash Emmett unleashed an unstoppable drive from 20 yards which left O’Donnell with no chance as it flew straight into the top corner.
The Millers hit straight back when Proctor fired in his second goal of the afternoon.
After Will Vaulks hit the bar, the Millers added a fourth. A corner to the far stick was headed against the post by Michael Ihiekwe and David Ball was on hand to tap in.
Just before the break the Millers made it six when Newell converted a dipping volley into the bottom left corner.
