Seattle Mariners outfielder Mitch Haniger doubled with one out in the 9th inning on Tuesday to break up the Miami Marlins’ combined no-hitter attempt.
Lefthander Wei-Yin Chen threw seven hitless innings, walking two, before being pulled for veteran reliever Brad Ziegler, who pitched a perfect eighth. Ziegler was then replaced by Kyle Barraclough, who retired one batter before Haniger’s hit.
Chen threw 100 pitches. He entered Tuesday night’s game with a 4.20 ERA and a 1–0 record on the season. He went 5–5 last season in 22 starts for the Marlins.
Barraclough went on to retire the final two batters, preserving the Marlins’ 5–0 win.
The last Marlins pitcher to throw a no-hitter was Henderson Álvarez against the Detroit Tigers on Sept. 29, 2013. The last combined no-hitter in MLB was thrown by the Philadelphia Phillies against the Atlanta Braves on Sept. 1, 2014.
