Rivera honored before Marlins no-hit Yankees 5-0

Posted: Updated:

PANAMA CITY (AP) - It turns out the Miami Marlins had their own way of honoring Mariano Rivera in his home country.

Rivera threw out a ceremonial first pitch before Brad Hand and three relievers combined for a no-hitter in Miami's 5-0 victory over the New York Yankees on Saturday night in the first of two exhibition games in Panama to honor baseball's career saves leader.

Hand struck out six in five innings. Relievers Steve Cishek, A.J. Ramos and Arquimedes Caminero took it the rest of the way for the Marlins.

New York shortstop Derek Jeter went 0 for 3 with two strikeouts.

The 44-year-old Rivera, a native of the fishing village of Puerto Caimito, spent his entire 19-year career in the major leagues with the Yankees.
