Three Wednesday takeaways from the Mariners' 10-5 victory over Miami

Three Wednesday takeaways from the Mariners' 10-5 victory over Miami

Wednesday's series finale won by Seattle, 10-5, was also Ichiro Dual Bobblehead Day, in which fans received a bobblehead with two Ichiros, one from each team.

The Seattle victory came despite an impressive showing by Miami outfielders Christian Yelich and Giancarlo Stanton, who each hit long home runs off Mariners starter Felix Hernandez.

Chen had perhaps the best start of his career, working seven innings before being lifted with his pitch count at 100.

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

"He's the king, man", said Edinson Volquez, the Marlins' starting pitcher on Wednesday.

Chen started the seventh inning with another walk - to Haniger, who worked back from a 0-2 hole.

Miami built a early four-run lead for Chen by scoring single runs in the first two innings against Mariners starter Yovani Gallardo (0-2) before Justin Bour hit a two-run homer in the third inning. The best contact Seattle made came in the fifth inning when Kyle Seager hit a one-hopper back up the middle that shortstop JT Riddle gloved and threw to first.

Reason Why Tom Brady Missed Donald Trump Visit Revealed
Just as the president's fixation on fudging the crowd size for his inauguration was totally pointless, so too is this debate. No-shows from this year's Super Bowl-winning football team included quarterback Tom Brady and wide receiver Danny Amendola .

But none were as loud as when he hit his home run. Cruz followed with his second homer, lining a 1-1 pitch to center to make it 3-0.

Indians 11, Twins 4: Jose Ramirez homered and drove in two runs, and Josh Tomlin gave up three runs in six innings to lead Cleveland over Minnesota.

Brewers slugger Eric Thames had two doubles and three hits but ended his franchise record-tying homer streak at five games. Facing right-hander Evan Marshall, he ambushed a belt-high, first-pitch fastball, sending a low line drive just over the wall in right field for a solo homer. He walked four for the second straight start.

In his first two starts this season, Chen allowed seven hits in each start.

Motter, filling in for injured shortstop Jean Segura, is hitting.409 with four doubles, three homers and six RBIs in his last six games.

In his second season with the Marlins a year ago, Suzuki collected his 3,000 hit to join the hallowed fraternity. He is batting.348 with two doubles, four homers and 11 RBI over that span. The Mariners travel to Oakland for a four-game series against the Athletics beginning Thursday night.
