SEATTLE — Michael Pineda took a no-hitter into the sixth inning, Ichiro Suzuki had three hits and the Seattle Mariners ended the Philadelphia Phillies’ season-high seven-game winning streak with a 4-2 victory Friday night.

Shane Victorino singled to right with two outs in the sixth inning for the first hit against Pineda (7-4). Utley followed with an RBI single.

Ichiro, the two-time batting champion, had his six straight multihit game, raising his batting average from .252 to .275.

Dustin Ackley, the second pick in the 2009 draft, called up before the game, stroked his first big league hit — a single through Roy Oswalt’s legs — in his first at-bat in the second inning. He finished 1 for 4.
