Marlins' Ichiro Suzuki Hits Home Run On Ichiro Bobblehead Night In Seattle
Seattle Mariners' Robinson Cano rounds the bases after hitting a two-run home run against the Miami Marlins to score Jarrod Dyson in the first inning of a baseball game, Monday, April 17, 2017, in Seattle.
Josh Phegley hit a two-run double in a four-run first that gave a quick lead to Jesse Hahn (1-1), who allowed one run and two hits over six innings, struck out four and walked four. Gallardo closed his evening with three scoreless innings, but the Mariners had no answers for Chen.
Chen (2-0) did the heavy lifting Tuesday, silencing the Mariners by staying around the edge of the strike zone.
In the ninth-inning, Ichiro shocked the masses by hitting a rare home run, which could easily be the last one hits in Major League Baseball.
Edinson Volquez - Miami's starter on Wednesday - never has lost to the Mariners, compiling a 5-0 record and 2.66 ERA in eight career appearances (seven starts). It came against reliever Kyle Barraclough after Wei-Yin Chen and Brad Ziegler held the Mariners hitless.
Miami almost pitched a no-hitter against the Mets on Sunday.
That allowed the Marlins to get even when Stanton started the third inning by crushing a 3-1 changeup for a 445-foot homer to center.
But none were as loud as when he hit his home run.
The Mariners manage no near-misses before Haniger's double.
Addison Russell hit a three-run homer off Neftali Feliz that capped a four-run ninth inning and lifted the Chicago Cubs over the Milwaukee Brewers 7-4 Wednesday. They averted the fifth no-hitter against them at Safeco when Haniger extended his hitting streak to 12 games.
Next came a four-pitch walk to Stanton, who had hit a moonshot homer in his previous at-bat.
In his second season with the Marlins previous year, Suzuki collected his 3,000 hit to join the hallowed fraternity.
Hernandez was far from his best, giving four hits - all singles - on the first six pitches of the game.
The victory completed a 6-3 homestand that helped erase the sour taste from starting the season with a 1-6 road trip. Manager Scott Servais said Segura will probably play one or two games - possibly with Class A Modesto - before rejoining the Mariners. The last time out, he failed to protect a 5-0 lead, although he did not get the loss.
