Miami Marlins Ichiro Suzuki steps out of the visitors dugout to be honored by Seattle Mariners players and executives for his 3,000 hit milestone in a pre-game ceremony before a baseball game against the Mariners his former

The Seattle victory came despite an impressive showing by Miami outfielders Christian Yelich and Giancarlo Stanton, who each hit long home runs off Mariners starter Felix Hernandez.

NATIONALS 3, BRAVES 1: Max Scherzer pitched two-hit ball over seven scoreless innings and Washington handed Atlanta its first loss at SunTrust Park, escaping a major jam in the ninth to win. During Wednesday's contest, he notched a two-run single against Edinson Volquez in the second inning, then proceeded to back that two-run hit up with a two-run double in the fourth.

The Mariners looked solid in the first game against the Marlins on Monday night, coming away with a 6-1 win.

Miami Marlins pitcher Wei-Yin Chen didn't give up a single hit through seven innings of work on Tuesday as the Marlins shut out the Seattle Mariners 5-0.

In the eighth inning, Marlins reliever Ziegler retired the side, although he had a groan-inducing close call. Yelich led off with a single and, with one out, Justin Bour sliced a 92-mph fastball over the left-field wall for a two-run homer that pushed the lead to 4-0.

Miller (2-1) kept the Padres off balance most of the night, including four 1-2-3 innings.

Cruz, who was 0-for-3 and was hit by a pitch, had his seven-game hitting streak snapped.

The Mariners added two runs in the fourth.

The southpaw walked two and struck out two and Ziegler hurled a ideal inning leaving it up to Barraclough.

Motter, filling in for injured shortstop Jean Segura, is hitting.409 with four doubles, three homers and six RBIs in his last six games.

The Marlins also let a no-hit bid off the hook with an out in the ninth last April, when Adam Conley and Jose Urena combined to hold Milwaukee hitless until Jonathan Lucroy's single.

Mariners: Right-hander Yovani Gallardo (0-1, 6.30) makes his third start and has gone five innings each in his previous two.

PLAY (S) OF THE GAME: Prado tested Dyson after the Marlins loaded the bases with no outs in the first inning. Servais said Segura could end up going to Double-A Arkansas for a couple of rehab games and rejoin the Mariners in Detroit for the start of a series next Tuesday.
