Wei-Yin Chen throws a gem as Miami shuts out Seattle

21 April 2017, 03:21 | Gladys Abbott

A victory would give Seattle (6-9) just their second series win of the young season.

Hernandez (2-1) was far from his best, allowing five hits in the first inning, four before recording an out. Still 2.5 hrs til 1st pitch. But allowing 11 earned runs over 16 innings isn't a good trend.

Rays 5, Tigers 1: Matt Andriese outpitched Michael Fulmer, Tim Beckham hit a two-run homer and Tampa Bay beat Detroit.

Miami Marlins' Ichiro Suzuki tips his cap after being honored by Seattle Mariners players and executives for his 3,000 hit milestone in a pre-game ceremony before a baseball game against the Mariners, his former team, Monday, .

RAYS 5, TIGERS 1: Matt Andriese outpitched Michael Fulmer, Tim Beckham hit a two-run homer and Tampa Bay beat Detroit. He was pulled by manager Don Mattingly after throwing 100 pitches, and the bullpen sought to finish what the left-hander from Taiwan had started.

There were few times Seattle even threatened a hit against Chen, even with the number of balls put in play. He added a two-run single in the fourth and worked a bases-loaded walk in a two-run eighth inning. More and more, it looked like the Mariners were about to be no-hit for the first time since Philip Humber's ideal game in 2012. The ball ricocheted and struck umpire Mark Wegner square in the mask. Haniger walked on a 3-2 pitch to open the inning and Nelson Cruz was hit by a pitch with one out.

In what might well be his final appearance in Seattle, Suzuki did not let the crowd down, hitting the first pitch from Mariners reliever Evan Marshall for a home run to right field. It's also his first homer at Safeco Field since April 18, 2012, when he was still playing for them.

Marcell Ozuna punched an RBI single through the left side for a 2-0 lead before Hernandez ended the inning.

Atlanta scored a run against closer Blake Treinen and had the bases loaded with one out. Haniger then extended his hitting streak to 13 games with a two-run single to right. Dyson advanced to third on Mitch Haniger's ground out and came home on Cano's double off the wall in left-center. Gallardo closed his evening with three scoreless innings, but the Mariners had no answers for Chen.
