Ariel Miranda’s scoreless seven-inning start for the Mariners on Monday marks the second time in the team’s history – the last time being in 1992 – that Seattle has recorded three starts of at least seven scoreless innings in the first 14 games of the season.
Miranda allowed the Miami Marlins only four hits in the Mariners’ 6-1 victory that extended their winning-streak to four games.
James Paxton recorded Seattle’s other two scoreless outings of at least seven innings this season. He held the Astros to no runs on April 10 in seven innings on the mound and pitched eight scoreless innings five days later against the Texas Rangers.
