Yankees almost return favor on no-hitter to Marlins in Panama

So I guess the hits Marisnick, Dietrich, Yelich and Hechavarria got on Saturday didn’t count…

Francisco Cervelli was 3-for-3 Sunday, and got the first hit of the game. Since the Yankees were no-hit Saturday, Cervelli’s hit represented the first by a Major Leaguer since 1947, when the Yankees and MLB visited the country that year. “I’m lucky. I’m going to be in the (record) books,” said Cervelli.

...Derek Jeter said the Yankees didn’t arrive at Rod Carew Stadium Sunday with any chip on their shoulders after getting no-hit by the Marlins 24 hours earlier.

But the Yankees certainly seemed like they were poised to return the favor, taking a no-no into the 7th inning before Miami slugger Giancarlo Stanton got a hit off Preston Claiborne, but was thrown out trying to stretch a single into a double. Jeter blamed Willie Randolph (a Yankee guest instructor who made the trip to Panama) for the failed bid.

“I think Willie Randolph jinxed it on the beach. Right before Stanton came up, he said, ‘Wouldn’t it be something if there was another no-hitter?’ Then (Stanton) got a hit on the next pitch. So (Randolph) blew it for us,” joked Jeter.

So no Marlin collected a hit either on the previous day? Or is it Marlins don't count as major leaguers?

They didn't bring their starters.

Christian Yelich had a hit on Saturday and he has 273 MLB PAs.

Jake Marisnick had two hits and he has 118 MLB PAs.

Matt Angle also had a hit and he has 95 MLB PAs.

I don't think they're counting the Marlins as an MLB team.

. . . 1947, when the Yankees and MLB visited the country that year.

Wonder if anyone who saw the 1947 games - which might have been marketed more toward Americans in the Canal Zone - took in these games? Seems like everyone is tying the current visit to the 1947 trip, even Jeter who noted that the Yankees were in Panama “for the first time since 1947, back when Mo was a young child.”

“for the first time since 1947, back when Mo was a young child still being assembled.”
