Mitch Haniger: Haniger finishes with three hits, four RBI

"Once we got through the eighth there, and they hit a couple of those dribblers and we were able to get outs".

Martin Prado's error on Haniger's hard-hit grounder in the sixth inning was the first by the Marlins' infield this season and first in 24 games dating to last September.

The home run came off the first pitch that he saw in what could be his final at-bat at Safeco Field. There were no great defensive plays by the Marlins.

In what could very well be his final career at-bat at his former home ballpark, Ichiro yanked a home run to right field in the ninth inning.

The Mariners travel to Oakland for a four-game series against the Athletics that begins Thursday night.

Miami Marlins starting pitcher Wei-Yin Chen throws against the Seattle Mariners during the first inning of a baseball game, Tuesday, April 18, 2017, in Seattle.

"Of course he did that", Miami's Christian Yelich said. He walked four for the second straight start. "You don't want to see your opponent hit a home run off you, but at that moment, that was pretty special", Seattle third baseman Kyle Seager said (via the Seattle Times).

Gallardo's problems started immediately when Dee Gordon whacked the game's first pitch into the right-center gap for a double. Paxton has not allowed an earned run in his first 21 innings. Haniger then extended his hitting streak to 13 games with a two-run single to right.

For all his accomplishments at the plate, Suzuki was never a home run hitter, although he had said he could hit 40 a season if we were willing to sacrifice his batting average. Yelich made an over-the-shoulder basket catch of Jarrod Dyson's first-inning drive while crashing into the center-field wall. The win also represented Miami's fourth in its last five games dating back to Friday's 3-2 triumph over the New York Mets.
