Marlins' Chen, Ziegler no-hitting Mariners through 8 innings
Let's just say it could have been worse Tuesday, a lot worse, when the Mariners' four-game winning streak came to an end in a 5-0 loss to the Miami Marlins at Safeco Field. Chen had seven no-hit innings before being pulled. Dan Straily and two relievers combined to no-hit the New York Mets through seven innings Sunday before Neil Walker broke it up in the eighth inning with a single off Brad Ziegler with two outs.
The Seattle Mariners will honour Ichiro Suzuki with a unique collectable during the series finale against the Miami 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.
Hernandez is 2-0 with a 2.35 ERA and 0.72 WHIP in two career starts against the Marlins as Seattle looks to win the three-game set. A night after breaking up a potential no-hitter with a ninth-inning double, Haniger scored in the first inning, had a two-run single in the second and clanged a two-run double off the wall in deep center field in the fourth.
RAYS 5, TIGERS 1: Matt Andriese outpitched Michael Fulmer, Tim Beckham hit a two-run homer and Tampa Bay beat Detroit.
So that's awesome. Long known for his impressive displays of batting-practice power, Ichiro told USA TODAY Sports in 2007 that he felt he could hit 40 homers in a season if he were willing to accept a.220 batting average.
Kevin Gausman (1-1) allowed eight runs and eight hits over 2 2-3 innings. A Mexican delicacy consisting of toasted grasshoppers doused with key lime salt and chili powder, the treat has been selling so much that the stadium actually ran out over a three-game series last week. (He walked two and hit a batter).
Mariners: Servais hopes Segura (strained right hamstring) is ready to come off the 10-day DL at Oakland on Thursday. The Miami half recognizes Suzuki's 3,000th hit last season with the Marlins.
