Miami has another near-no-hitter, beats Seattle 5-0

Posted April 20, 2017

Mitch Haniger went 3-for-4 with a two-run double, four total RBI and three runs scored in Wednesday's 10-5 win over the Marlins.

The first inning proved to be the toughest for Hernandez, who allowed only the two solo home runs after that, finishing with 6 1/3 innings, allowing 12 hits and four runs while striking out five and walking one.

The Seattle Mariners are playing host to the Miami Marlins this week.

PLAY OF THE GAME: Heredia saved three runs by pulling back a homer with a leaping two-out catch at the left-field wall on Ozuna's drive in the first inning. It is the only walk issued this season by Hernandez after 24 2/3 innings over his four starts. "With the game the way it was going, that's what I wanted to hit, right there", Suzuki said through an interpreter, while also indicating he hoped to have another trip to Seattle in the future.

Red Sox 8, Blue Jays 7: Brian Johnson earned his first major league win after being called up from the minors earlier in the day, Mookie Betts hit his first home run of the season and Boston hung on to beat Toronto for its season-high fourth straight victory.

For over 11 years, Ichiro remained the centerpiece of the Mariners offense.

In all, he gave up 12 hits, including booming homers to Giancarlo Stanton and Christian Yelich.

In what could very well be his final career at-bat at his former home ballpark, Ichiro yanked a home run to right field in the ninth inning. (He walked two and hit a batter). The bobblehead commemorates his 262-hit season in 2004 with the Mariners and his 3,000th career hit in 2016 with the Marlins.

Marlins: 3B Martin Prado was back in the lineup after leaving Monday's game with a cramp in his calf. He has allowed seven runs in 10 innings (five per game) against the Angels and Astros.

Again the Mariners answered when Cruz and Seager opened the bottom of the inning with successive doubles for a 4-3 lead.

Mariners: Shortstop Jean Segura (hamstring) is likely to go on a brief rehab assignment before rejoining the Mariners in Oakland this weekend. He entered Tuesday night's game with a 4.20 ERA and a 1-0 record on the season.
