Cano, Cruz power Mariners past Marlins in Ichiro return
Apr 20 2017 by Larry Hoffman
The Marlins offensive struggles did not halt at Ichiro, as the Fish only recorded five hits, four of which against Mariners starter Ariel Miranda, who was dazzling in eight shutout innings. Gallardo closed his evening with three scoreless innings, but the Mariners had no answers for Chen.
Chen, who dealt with elbow issues last season, was lifted after throwing his 100th pitch to complete the seventh inning.
The Marlins were on the verge of the sixth no-hitter in franchise history when Mitch Haniger lined a one-out double into right-center field off Kyle Barraclough.
Had they achieved the feat, the Marlins would have become the first team to throw a combined no-hitter since the Philadelphia Phillies did so on September 1, 2014, according to ESPN Stats & Info.
The Seattle Mariners are playing host to the Miami Marlins this week.
The Taiwanese left-hander has one strikeout and thrown 76 pitches.
It was the second time in three days that the Marlins carried a no-hitter into the late innings.
Rays 5, Tigers 1: Matt Andriese outpitched Michael Fulmer, Tim Beckham hit a two-run homer and Tampa Bay beat Detroit. Cruz followed with his second homer, lining a 1-1 pitch to center to make it 3-0.
Yelich was the star for Miami in a losing effort, adding two singles to go with his home run, and a superlative catch in the first inning on a deep fly ball by Dyson. He is batting.348 with two doubles, four homers and 11 RBI over that span.
Johnson (1-0), promoted Tuesday morning from Triple-A Pawtucket, gave up four runs and seven hits and struck out six in five innings. 3B Martin Prado was out of the lineup after leaving Monday's game with a calf cramp. The Mariners travel to Oakland for a four-game series against the Athletics beginning Thursday night. The bobblehead commemorates his 262-hit season in 2004 with the Mariners and his 3,000th career hit in 2016 with the Marlins.
Chen's 0-for-51 hitless streak, which covered 57 plate appearances, was the fourth-longest such run to start a career among players who have debuted since 1900, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. If you would like to discuss another topic, look for a relevant article.
