First inning

The Mariners go down 1-2-3

Roenis Elias’ first inning wasn’t dull. He issued a one-out walk to Marcell Ozuna and then wisely pitched around Giancarlo Stanton for a walk. He got Casey McGehee to fly out to left (near collision for Ackley and Almonte). He also mixed in a balk to move the runners up a base. And then he struck out Jarrod Saltalamacchia on a nasty backfoot curveball.

Manager Lloyd McClendon mentioned how excited Elias – a Cuban native – was to pitch in Miami with friends and family able to watch.

Mariners 0, Marlins 0

Second inning

Alvarez goes 1-2-3 against the Mariners.

Elias gave up a one-out double to Adeiny Hechavarria, but comes back to get the next two outs.

Mariners 0, Marlins 0

Third inning

Mariners go down 1-2-3 again. The best at-bat so far belongs to Elias, who worked a 3-2 count and hit a decently hard one hopper to third base.

All those base runners finally caught up to Elias. He gave up a lead-off double to Christian Yelich, who moved to third when Almonte misplayed the ball off the wall. Elias struck out Ozuna, walked Stanton and gave up a RBI single to Casey McGehee. He got out of the inning thanks to a 6-4-3 double play on Saltalamacchia.

Marlins 1, Mariners 0

Fourth inning

Alvarez hasn’t allowed a base runner yet. 1-2-3.

Lead is pushed to 2-0 when Zunino locked up on a fastball and had it bounce out of his glove for a passed ball that scored a run.

Marlins 2, Mariners 0

Fifth inning

Alvarez still perfect

Marlins 2, Mariners 0

Sixth inning 

Ackley breaks up the perfect game, but he’s erased immediately by a double play. This might be a two-hit sort of night.

Elias gives up a RBI single to Henderson Alvarez – not good. Then gave up a three-run homer to Marcell Ozuna – even worse.

Marlins 6, Mariners 0
