Marlins Walk Off With Series Win in 12th

Christian Yelich's two-out double in the 12th inning lifted Miami to a 4-3 win on Thursday

The Miami Marlins came away with a 4-3 win in 12 innings over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Thursday.

Christian Yelich's two-out double in the 12th plated Martin Prado with the game-winning run. With the win, Miami took three of four from the Pirates. The Marlins are now 29-25 on the year.

Ichiro Suzuki turned back the clock and filled the box score all night long. The veteran had two hits including his fifth double of the season. Suzuki also stole a base and made multiple highlight reel worthy defensive plays. One of those plays was a leaping catch at the wall to preserve a no-hitter at the time.

Wei-Yin Chen took a no-hitter into the seventh inning and lost it to the first batter of the frame. Chen would let the next hitter reach as well and was lifted at that point. Both of the runners would end up scoring off reliever Dustin McGowan. Chen's final line for the day consisted of two runs on one hit in six innings. The lefty struck out five and walked three.

In the ninth, Kyle Barraclough entered for the save chance. Both David Phelps and A.J. Ramos have been busy as of late, and manager Don Mattingly opted o stay away from them in this one. Barraclough was one out away from the save before Pittsburgh tied the game up.

Giancarlo Stanton had a double of his own in the win. The sixth two-base hit of the year for Stanton plated a run to give him 27 runs batted in. Miguel Rojas (7) and J.T. Realmuto (14) would each tally an RBI as well.

The Marlins will begin a series against the New York Mets on Friday with Tom Koehler on the mound.
