Ichiro hits home run in possible final at-bat in Seattle

20 April, 2017, 13:28 | Author: Alberta Rodriguez

Mitch Haniger went 3-for-4 with a two-run double, four total RBI and three runs scored in Wednesday's 10-5 win over the Marlins. 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.

Suzuki jumped on a fastball from Evan Marshall that had just enough to clear the fence in right field as Haniger watched.

The Mariners have now hit 402 home runs during Interleague Play, becoming the 8th team in Major League history to record at least 400 homers (also: Toronto, 475, Chicago-AL, 448, Texas, 440, Baltimore, 439, Boston, 436, New York-AL, 422, and Detroit, 407). 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.

Ichiro Suzuki, a member of the Seattle Mariners for 11 seasons, returned to Safeco Field for what potentially could have been his final game in front of the Seattle faithful. "I feel grateful that it happened". Brad Ziegler got through the eighth inning with the no-hitter intact, but Kyle Barraclough saw Mitch Haniger line a double to right-field to spoil the flawless night.

Haniger was considered the extra piece of Seattle's biggest offseason move when it acquired Jean Segura in a trade with Arizona.

Mariners: Servais hopes Segura (strained right hamstring) is ready to come off the 10-day DL at Oakland on Thursday. He is hitting.323.

Mariners: Right-hander Yovani Gallardo (0-1, 6.30) makes his third start and has gone five innings each in his previous two.

Now 31, his walk rate each of the last four seasons has risen while his velocity sits in the 90-92 range.

Davis hit a two-run homer in the fifth, his third home run in six games.

Chen allowed three baserunners, two in the seventh. Stanton's homer was his fourth this season, a 445-foot shot to deep left-center field.

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.

"I knew I didn't have my best stuff today but I was going to battle and stay in as long as I can", Hernandez said.

Yelich, sprinting with his back to home plate, leaped into the air and caught the ball, only to crash face-first into the wall.

Dyson opened the Mariners' first with a drive over the Yelich's head in center field.
