Marlins Tally Just Three Hits in Loss at Yankee Stadium

The Marlins struggled to get anything going off Michael Pineda on Wednesday

The Miami Marlins came up short in their bid to win a third straight game as the New York Yankees won 2-1 on Wednesday.

In what was Miami's first ever game at the newest Yankee Stadium, the team only compiled three hits. Michael Pineda who started for New York held Miami hitless until the seventh inning when Christian Yelich hit a solo home run.

This was the second time this season that a pitcher took a no-hitter into the late innings against Miami. Earlier in the year, Shelby Miller of the Atlanta took a no-no into the ninth with two outs before Justin Bour broke it up.

Jose Urena held his own as he continued a strong stretch of starts. The rookie took the loss to fall to 1-3, but has a respectable 4.18 E.R.A on the season. With some arms returning from the disabled list soon, Urena could find himself back in the minors despite the success.

The Marlins tied the game momentarily in the eighth inning before a replay review took the run off the board. Adeiny Hechavarria slid home with the tying run, but a replay showed that Brian McCann had tagged the shortstop out prior to him touching the plate.

Another hit for Miami came courtesy of Ichiro Suzuki who singled to give him 2,885 hits in his Major League Baseball career. Suzuki was given a start in right field as Giancarlo Stanton was penciled in as Miami's designated hitter.

The Marlins will try and split the Bronx series when Mat Latos gets the ball on Thursday.
