That's because Marlins pitchers Wei-Yin Chen, Brad Ziegler and Kyle Barraclough collectively came within two outs of no-hitting the Mariners for the fourth time in team history. Chen was pulled after seven innings, and Ziegler got three groundouts to complete the eighth Tuesday night.

It was the second time in three days that the Marlins carried a no-hitter into the late innings.

The Mariners won their fourth straight since a 2-8 start. For those counting at home, that's 12 consecutive plate appearances reaching base safely ending in five walks (one intentional), two singles, two doubles, and three home runs. Keuchel (2-0, 0.86 ERA) has allowed just eight hits in 21 innings this season heading into a start against the Angels.

When the Marlins then put two runners on base against Marshall, manager Scott Servais summoned Rzepczynski for the final out. It is the only walk issued this season by Hernandez after 24 2/3 innings over his four starts. With runners at first and second, Adrian Gonzalez grounded out to end it.

Johnson (1-0), promoted Tuesday morning from Triple-A Pawtucket, gave up four runs and seven hits and struck out six in five innings.

Miami got one run back when Yelich opened the fifth inning with a 415-foot homer to left field when Hernandez served up a 3-1 cookie of a fastball. Dyson's one-out looping double over third scored Martin. 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.

The Mariners manage no near-misses before Haniger's double.

Mariners: Shortstop Jean Segura (hamstring) is likely to go on a brief rehab assignment before rejoining the Mariners in Oakland this weekend.

The Brewers staked Jimmy Nelson to a 5-0 lead in the third, but the right-hander couldn't make it hold. The Miami half recognizes Suzuki's 3,000th hit last season with the Marlins. If you would like to discuss another topic, look for a relevant article.
