The Miami Marlins fell two outs shy of no-hitting the Seattle Mariners, a year ago today.
On Tuesday, April 18, 2017, at Safeco Field, Wei-Yin Chen threw seven innings of no-hit ball before handing relief duties to Brad Ziegler, who got through the eighth inning unscathed. Kyle Barraclough took the ball for the ninth and recorded one out before the Mariners’ Mitch Haniger tagged him for a double. The Marlins won the game 5-0.
The combined no-no bid came just two days after the Marlins took a no-no against the New York Mets at home at Marlins Park into the eighth inning. In that game, the tandem of Dan Straily (5⅓), Jarlin Garcia (⅔) and Kyle Barraclough (1) no-hit the Mets through seven innings, and Brad Ziegler took the ball for the eighth. Ziegler retired two batters before Neil Walker hit a single up the middle to kill the effort. The Marlins won that game 4-2.
