Miami's Chen pulled from no-hit bid to start 8th vs Seattle

Share

Otherwise, Chen has kept Seattle hitters guessing.

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.

Chen, who dealt with elbow issues last season, was lifted after throwing his 100th pitch to complete the seventh inning.

The Seattle victory came despite an impressive showing by Miami outfielders Christian Yelich and Giancarlo Stanton, who each hit long home runs off of Mariners starter Felix Hernandez.

For the first time this season, Cano and Cruz hit back-to-back homers. He struck out three, walked two and hit a batter as 16,126 watched the tension build. Chen had pitched only nine innings this season, so Mattingly chose the conservative route and brought in veteran Brad Ziegler for the eighth. The Marlins would still hold on to win, though, 5-0. He weaved through the Mariners order through seven innings, allowing no hits. He allowed all four runs in the first three innings, including one on a wild pitch. Dan Straily got through 5 1/3 innings and Jarlin Garcia and Kyle Barraclough kept NY hitless until Ziegler allowed a single with two outs in the eighth.

The Marlins as a team didn't give up a single hit until the ninth inning in this one.

The Miami Marlins are 0-5 this season when allowing more than four runs and 7-1 when allowing our or less runs.
