Follow along live as the Mariners look to punctuate a 9-game homestand as Felix Hernandez looks to give Seattle a series win over the Marlins.
Chen entered with a 7.00 ERA and 14 hits allowed over his first two starts of the season, both coming against the New York Mets.
Wei-Yin Chen and two relievers fell two outs shy of Miami's first combined no-hitter and the Marlins one-hit the Seattle Mariners in a 5-0 victory.
NOTES: Marlins OF Ichiro Suzuki's fourth-inning inning single was his 1,239th hit at Safeco Field, the most in the stadium's history.
OUR PICK: The Cardinals have won four of Wacha's last five home starts versus the Pirates, who are winless at 0-5 in their last five games versus the Cards and 11-27 in their last 38 games in St. Louis.
Long-time Mariners right fielder and current Marlin Ichiro Suzuki provided fans at Safeco with an incredible moment on Wednesday night when he hit a home run in his final at-bat. But that's the way baseball works - that's the charm of all sports really, and so it was that in the late innings each at bat, each pitch, held intrigue even beyond the score.
The Mariners led 3-2 but missed the chance for a bigger inning when Haniger was thrown out stealing for a double play after Cano took a third strike.
The Taiwanese left-hander has one strikeout and thrown 76 pitches.
Along with his fourth home run of the season, Yelich's catch in the first inning will be tough to top all season.
Mitch Haniger had a day that would be tough to upstage, reaching base five times and driving in four runs as the Seattle rookie continued his hot start.
Chen allowed three baserunners, two in the seventh. But Haninger ended the bid for a no-hitter rarity - Major League Baseball has seen only 11 combined efforts - by hitting a no-doubt double off a 1-2 fastball to the right-center wall. "With the game the way it was going, that's what I wanted to hit, right there", Suzuki said through an interpreter (via the AP), while also indicating he hoped to have another trip to Seattle in the future. He was hurt on the play and was on the field for a few minutes before walking off under his own power.
Gallardo's problems started immediately when Dee Gordon whacked the game's first pitch into the right-center gap for a double.
