Marlins pull even closer to combined no-hitter, broken up after 8 1/3

The Miami Marlins nearly threw the team’s first combined no-hitter on Tuesday night, blanking the Seattle Mariners 5-0 at Safeco Field but losing the no-no in the 9th.

Wei-Yin Chen threw seven no-hit innings, reaching his 100th pitch on the third out of the 7th. Marlins skipper Don Mattingly gave the ball to Brad Ziegler, who kept the no-no going through the 8th.

Kyle Barraclough came in to close the game, but gave up a one-out double to Mitch Haniger.
