Miami's Chen pulled from no-hit bid to start 8th vs Seattle

Chen was in total control, throwing 64 of his 100 pitches for strikes and flummoxing the Mariners hitters with his curveball and changeup.

On Wei-Yin Chen's no-hit possibility: "Tonight's was different than the other day, I thought we felt like we were close and had a good shot tonight, once we got through the eighth there and they hit a couple of those dribblers and we were able to get outs".

Miami almost pitched a no-hitter against the Mets on Sunday.

Chen (2-0) did the heavy lifting, silencing the Mariners for seven innings.

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.

Yelich's single in the first inning had scored Dee Gordon, who led off the game with a double, as the Marlins put up four runs in the first three innings.

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

During the streak he hit.370 (10×27) with 4 runs, 1 double, 2 home runs and 6 RBI. The former Korean baseball star has a hit in a team-record 12 straight starts to begin the season, and he has an extra-base hit in eight consecutive games. Adam Rosales hit a two-run home run and Khris Davis added a sacrifice fly as part of a four-run sixth as the A's overcame their majors-leading 17th error to snap a four-game losing streak.

So the Mariners avoided the fourth no-hit loss in their 41-year history.

Suzuki was honored before the game for getting his 3,000th hit last season, then got another ovation before his first at-bat in the third inning. Dyson advanced to third on Mitch Haniger's ground out and came home on Cano's double off the wall in left-center. In his most recent start, those seven hits led to seven runs, which was a big reason why he started the game with a 7.00 ERA. The Japanese right-hander found his form while working into the seventh inning after struggling in his previous two starts.

Be Civil - It's OK to have a difference in opinion but there's no need to be a jerk.
