Miami Marlins Ichiro Suzuki tips his cap after

Wei-Yin Chen left the game after 7.0 no-hit innings after throwing 100 pitches.

Marlins: Martin Prado, who began the season on the DL (strained right hamstring), was recalled and in the lineup at 3B, batting second. In seven innings, he did not allow a hit. Haniger then extended his hitting streak to 13 games with a two-run single to right. Barraclough only made it through one batter before coughing up the no-no, however. Mattingly chose to pull Chen, meaning the no-hit effort would become a collective affair. The Marlins' closer retired the Mariners in order. Jarrod Dyson, the fastest player on the Mariners and one of the fastest players in baseball, dribbled a swinging bunt that he almost beat out. He added a two-run single in the fourth and worked a bases-loaded walk in a two-run eighth inning. He lasted just three innings in his last outing, allowing six runs and seven hits, including two homers, but did not get a decision.

Scherzer (2-1) got an inning-ending double play to work around his only serious trouble in the fourth. He walked Haniger after a lengthy battle, which inched his pinch count higher.

Mitch Haniger's one-out double in the ninth inning saved the Mariners from the indignity of a no-hit loss.

"He deserves everything he gets", Marlins manager Don Mattingly said.

Chen received congratulatory hugs from teammates.

Ender Inciarte hit the first home run in baseball's newest stadium, local product Nick Markakis drove in the first two runs and the Atlanta Braves beat the San Diego Padres 5-2 in the regular-season debut for.

Hernandez defeated Texas on Friday, when he allowed one run and six hits in 7 1/3 innings. He was one of the most beloved Mariners ever, and he's still got a lot of fans in Seattle.

George Springer hit his AL-leading seventh home run for the Astros, whose five-game winning streak was snapped.

The Mariners won 6 to 1.

While giving up a ninth inning home run would normally be a less than favorable turn for the home team, it was a special moment for both Ichiro and the organization, as well as the 27,000 fans in attendance.
