By TIM REYNOLDS-AP Sports Writer
MIAMI (AP) _ Josh Johnson took a no-hitter into the seventh inning, John Buck hit a grand slam in his Florida debut and the Marlins beat the New York Mets 6-2 on Friday night in the season opener for both teams.
Logan Morrison also homered and Gaby Sanchez added an RBI single
for the Marlins, who played their 19th and final opener at Sun Life stadium. The team moves into a new ballpark in 2012.
Willie Harris had a leadoff double in the seventh for New York’s first hit off Johnson (1-0). Carlos Beltran lined an RBI double and Ike Davis knocked in another run with a groundout off Johnson for the Mets, who had only one returner from their 2010 opening-day lineup _ third baseman David Wright.
