Walker's single ends Marlins' no-hit bid after 7 2/3 innings
MIAMI (AP) Neil Walker ended the Miami Marlins' no-hit bid against the New York Mets on Sunday when he singled up the middle off reliever Brad Ziegler with two outs in the eighth inning.
Straily, who entered with a 7.56 ERA in his first two starts, walked five and struck out five in 5 1/3 innings. He was removed after consecutive walks to Walker and Yoenis Cespedes,
Straily threw just 50 of 93 pitches for strikes.
Barraclough pitched a 1-2-3 seventh inning, aided by a running catch by right fielder Giancarlo Stanton.
Ziegler got the first two outs of the eighth before Walker lined up a single up the middle on a 2-0 pitch.
Left fielder Marcell Ozuna leaped and hung on to the top of the left-field wall to catch a fly ball hit by Wilmer Flores in the fifth inning. Flores slammed his batting helmet into his leg while Ozuna flashed a big smile to his teammates. Ozuna received a big hug from Straily in the dugout in between innings.
Miami led 2-0.
