Ichiro Suzuki, a member of the Seattle Mariners for 11 seasons, returned to Safeco Field for what potentially could have been his final game in front of the Seattle faithful.
In the end, the Marlins came two outs shy of a combined no-hitter, as Haniger doubled with one out in the ninth.
At 9:41 on Tuesday night, with the Mariners down five runs, Seattle right fielder Mitch Haniger drilled a one-out double into the right-center field gap, thus giving the Mariners a hit - their first (and only) hit of the night.
Through three starts (16 innings pitched) in 2017, Chen owns a 4.44 SIERA, a 15.4 percent strikeout rate and a 1.06 WHIP while limiting opponents to a 27.5 percent hard-hit rate.
Lefthander Wei-Yin Chen threw seven hitless innings, walking two, before being pulled for veteran reliever Brad Ziegler, who pitched a ideal eighth.

Seattle starter Yovani Gallardo (0-2) allowed four runs on nine hits. Gallardo has also allowed seven runs in 10 innings of work. Hernandez fanned former teammate Ichiro Suzuki five times while limiting him to three hits in 14 at-bats. He put the Mariners in a quick hole by surrendering two runs in the first inning and never appeared to find a comfort zone. It is the only walk issued this season by Hernandez after 24 2/3 innings over his four starts.
It got better after that. But with Segura sidelined by a hamstring strain, Haniger has starred.
It was Volquez's first loss against Seattle, as he had previously been 5-0 in eight appearances, and seven starts against the Mariners. The Marlins finally got on the board in the ninth inning thanks to an opposite field home run from Christian Yelich. Nick Vincent pitched a flawless eighth before Evan Scribner allowed Christian Yelich's third home run in the ninth.
"If given the choice any pitcher would like to go out there and keep pitching, but Don talked to me and gave me his reasoning and wanted to keep me healthy for the whole season, so under that situation I try not to think about it too much".
Again the Mariners answered when Cruz and Seager opened the bottom of the inning with successive doubles for a 4-3 lead. They averted the fifth no-hitter against them at Safeco when Haniger extended his hitting streak to 12 games.
