Marlins’ right-hander Dan Straily exited Sunday’s game after firing 5 1/3 innings of a no-hitter during the club’s series finale against the Mets. He held the Mets hitless into the sixth inning, but was pulled after his 93rd pitch and fifth walk of the afternoon, putting runners in scoring position for the first time and jeopardizing the team’s 1-0 lead.

Before things got out of control in the sixth, however, Straily looked nearly untouchable. He struck out five batters and was bailed out in the fifth inning by Marcell Ozuna’s incredible catch atop the left field wall:

The Marlins continued the combined no-hitter for another 2 1/3 innings, sending out lefty prospect Jarlin Garcia to finish off the sixth and utilizing right-hander Kyle Barraclough in the seventh inning. Brad Ziegler got the ball in the eighth, inducing a groundout and catching Curtis Granderson on a swinging strikeout before giving up the no-no on a 2-0 single to Neil Walker.
