Mitch Garver hit a two-run homer in the bottom of the ninth inning as the Seattle Mariners defeated the visiting Atlanta Braves 2-1 on Monday night in a pitching duel in which both starters had no-hitters through six innings.

Seattle's Jorge Polanco grounded a single to left field leading off against Atlanta's A.J. Minter (5-2). Garver then hammered a 3-2 cutter an estimated 412 feet off the facade of the second deck.

Neither Atlanta's Max Fried nor Seattle's Bryce Miller allowed a hit until the Braves' Ronald Acuna Jr. led off the seventh with an infield single, stole second and third and scored on Ozzie Albies' double to right field. Braves reliever Joe Jimenez lost the no-hitter in the eighth but got out of a bases-loaded jam to preserve the shutout.

Fried pitched six hitless innings, with two walks and seven strikeouts, while Miller allowed one run on two hits, walked one and fanned 10 in seven innings.
