Third baseman Kyle Seager almost matched his teammate, driving in four runs on two hits and a bases-loaded walk, as the Mariners used a hit and walk-laden assault on Miami pitching. Seattle OF Mitch Haniger's second inning single extended his hitting streak to 13 games.
Miami Marlins' Wei-Yin Chen throws to a Seattle Mariners batter during the sixth inning of a baseball game, Tuesday, April 18, 2017, in Seattle.
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.
It was the second time in three days that the Marlins carried a no-hitter into the late innings.
"But tip my cap. He stayed on it and went the other way with it".
J.T. Realmuto followed with a ground single through the right side that moved Gordon to third, and Gordon scored on Christian Yelich's high chop infield single. Fulmer (1-1), last season's AL Rookie of the Year, allowed three runs and six hits in six innings. "I had chills for him. It's his decision to make", Chen said through a translator. The Taiwanese left-hander has two strikeouts. He allowed three total baserunners, two coming in the seventh inning, on a walk to Haniger and when Nelson Cruz was hit by a pitch with one out.
Chen responded by striking out Kyle Seager and getting Taylor Motter to fly out. "We would be all over the place", Cano said.
There was a feel-good moment in the ninth inning when Marlins outfielder Ichiro Suzuki, a long-time Mariner, hit a home run in what might be his final at-bat at Safeco Field.
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. Since then, his plate appearances have gone: intentional walk, walk, double, two-run home run, double, solo home run, single, walk, walk, single, walk, solo home run.
It got better after that. With the outfielder hoping to play until 50, that is a record Ichiro may improve upon.
Marlins: Martin Prado, who began the season on the DL (strained right hamstring), was recalled and in the lineup at 3B, batting second. But with Segura sidelined by a hamstring strain, Haniger has starred. Servais said Segura could end up going to Double-A Arkansas for a couple of rehab games and rejoin the Mariners in Detroit for the start of a series next Tuesday. The Miami Marlins are 0-5 this season when allowing more than four runs and 7-1 when allowing our or less runs.
