Mariners SP Felix Hernandez gets no-decision


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(6/28/2015) Felix Hernandez authored another strong start for the Mariners, but wasn't around to factor in the decision as they dropped an extra-inning affair to the Angels on Sunday. 

Hernandez allowed just a season-low one hit over his six innings of work, striking out eight and walking three. He threw 96 pitches and 59 strikes, but his bullpen could not hold a 1-0 lead after he exited the contest. 

It's the first time in 13 starts that Hernandez hasn't either gotten a win or loss, dating back to a no-decision he earned on April 12. Hernandez (10-4) now has a 3.05 ERA on the season. 


Mariners SP Felix Hernandez allows four runs in Monday's loss


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(6/23/2015) Mariners pitcher Felix Hernandez was not sharp during Monday's 4-1 loss to the Royals.

Hernandez gave up four runs on nine hits over 6 2/3 innings of work. The nine hits surrendered were a season high for Hernandez. He also struck out five and walked one during the outing. He is now 10-4 with a 3.24 ERA on the season.

Hernandez has earned a quality start in two of his last four starts. His next expected start is scheduled for Sunday at the Los Angeles Angels.


Mariners P Felix Hernandez throws 8 scoreless innings


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(6/18/2015) Mariners pitcher Felix Hernandez did not surrender any runs in Wednesday night's 2-0 win over the Giants. 

This performance was vintage Hernandez as he went eight innings and only allowed four hits. He struck out five hitters and walked two batters. He gave up eight earned runs in his last start, making this a much-needed rebound outing for him. 

Hernandez now has an ERA of 3.08 this season. 

His next start is projected for June 22 against the Royals. 


Mariners' Felix Hernandez gets blasted in loss


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/13/2015) Mariners starter Felix Hernandez had the worst start of his MLB career on Friday. 

King Felix gave up eight runs in 1/3 of an inning, his shortest start since April 18, 2007. He left that start, eight years ago, due to tightness in his arm. 

Hernandez faced nine batters. Eight reached base and all of them scored. He surrendered five hits, including two home runs, walked two batters and struck out one.

It was the most runs Hernandez has ever given up. He became just the 13th pitcher since 1920 to give up at least eight runs and record one or fewer outs. 

"I don't know what happened," he said. "To be honest, I don't really know."

Hernandez's next start is Wednesday against San Francisco.  


Mariners SP Felix Hernandez turns in solid effort on Saturday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/7/2015) Felix Hernandez was excellent in his start against the Rays on Saturday. The Mariners' ace limited the Rays to one run on just two hits over seven solid innings. He walked three and struck out six, reducing his ERA to 2.51, as the Mariners picked up the 2-1 victory.

The only run the Rays could score against Hernandez came on a wild pitch with a runner on third in the sixth inning. That tied the game at one, but the Mariners were able to re-take the lead later in the game to secure the victory for Hernandez. Hernandez retired 11 in a row at one point in his impressive outing Saturday.

It was a nice rebound for the right-hander, as he was coming off his worst performance of the season in his previous start. But he picked up the win on Saturday. He has now won five of his last seven decisions.

Hernandez (9-2) will look to maintain the good fortune in his next start, scheduled for Friday in Houston.


King Felix not blaming mound conditions for poor outing


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/2/2015) Mariners starting pitcher Felix Hernandez was in vintage form Monday against the Yankees. Well, vintage form for at least the first three innings.

The Mariners ace was perfect through three innings before falling apart in a 7-2 loss. The Yankees scored two runs in the fourth and added five more in the fifth, and before you knew it, Hernandez was getting the hook. He was done after 4 2/3 innings, allowing seven runs on six hits -- including a grand slam to Mark Teixeira -- and five walks.

After throwing just three balls among his first 21 pitches, he threw 30 balls among his next 64 pitches before being removed from the game. He appeared to be struggling with his footing on the wet mound, as a burst of rain fell on the field in the second and third innings before the retractable roof at Safeo Field closed. However, Hernandez wasn't ready to blame a muddy mound for his woes.

"I would say yes, but that's not what happened," Hernandez said of the mound conditions being an issue, per MLB.com. "I was just making mistakes, I fell behind, I threw a lot of walks and then [Mark] Teixeira beat me with the grand slam. … I was just kicking dirt out of my cleats. But it's not that. It was just one of those days. It was on me."

Catcher Mike Zunino offered his perspective at why the team's ace fell apart after dominating the Yankees the first time through the lineup.

"I thought he threw really good the first three innings and then they sort of flipped the script," Zunino said. "They were really aggressive early, then they started taking pitches and got guys on. And then a big swing by Teixeira, that sort of turns the momentum right there. They started taking pitches and he was living right on the corners. He fell behind a little too much."

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(6/2/2015) Mariners pitcher Felix Hernandez had his worst start of the season during Monday's 7-2 loss to the Yankees.

Monday was the first time Hernandez was not able to pitch at least five innings in a start this season. He struck out four and walked a season-high five batters during the outing. His next expected start is scheduled for Saturday against the Rays.


Mariners pitcher Felix Hernandez tosses complete game shutout


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/27/2015) Mariners pitcher Felix Hernandez tossed a complete game shutout on Wednesday in Seattle's 3-0 win over the Rays on Wednesday. Hernandez scattered four hits with eight strikeouts and just one walk in his start.

Hernandez, who needed 101 pitches to get through the outing, did not allow a baserunner to reach third throughout his start. Hernandez moved to 8-1 on the year with a 1.91 ERA in 70 2/3 innings of work.

"What a performance," manager Lloyd McClendon said to The News Tribune. "I don't know what to say about the guy. When we need a complete game, he goes out and gives us a complete game.

"This one lived up to the billing. I can't say enough about their young starter. He was tremendous. At times, dominating…Needless to say, I was happy to see him leave the game."

It was the second complete game shutout Hernandez has tossed this year after not recording one in 2013 or 2014. 

He will look to keep things rolling Monday against the Yankees.


Mariners P Felix Hernandez allows 1 earned run in win


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/23/2015) Mariners pitcher Felix Hernandez had yet another strong game, allowing just one earned run in Friday night's 4-3 win over the Blue Jays. 

It was a great game for Hernandez, who was coming off a performance where he allowed four earned runs on May 16 against the Red Sox. Hernandez gave up only four hits and two walks while striking out eight batters. 

Hernandez now has 55 strikeouts in 54 2/3 innings this season. Hernandez now holds a 2.19 ERA for the season. 

His next start is projected for May 27 against the Rays. 


Mariners' Felix Hernandez (ankle) expected to start Friday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/17/2015) Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said Sunday that pitcher Felix Hernandez (ankle) is fine and should be able to make his next scheduled start on Friday, MLB.com reports.

"I think he's going to be just fine," McClendon said. "He's [twisted the ankle] before, but he assured me that was not the reason. He just didn't pitch good."

Hernandez gave up four runs in six innings in a loss Sunday. He's 6-1 with a 2.30 ERA and 55:12 K:BB ratio in 54 2/3 innings.


Mariners pitcher Felix Hernandez suffers first loss of the season


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/17/2015) Mariners starting pitcher Felix Hernandez went six innings on Saturday, giving up four runs on seven hits in six innings in Seattle's 4-2 loss to the Red Sox.

David Ortiz and Pablo Sandoval each delivered solo homers off Hernandez.

Hernandez also surrendered two homers in his last start, a win against the Athletics.

The left hander came into Saturday's start with eight walks for the season, but issued four free passes to the Red Sox.

"No, it wasn't the ankle. It was just me," Hernandez said to MLB.com. "It was mechanical. My sinker was moving away from the strike zone. … The whole game, I fell behind a lot of times. My command wasn't there."

Manager Lloyd McClendon said the team would re-evaluate Hernandez's ankle on Sunday.

Hernandez's ERA jump from 1.85 to 2.30 in the loss.

Hernandez's next start is scheduled for Friday in Toronto.

Hernandez (5-0) blanked the Angels for six innings before his team was able to get him a 2-0 lead with a pair of homers in the top of the seventh. The Mariners starter served up a solo homer of his own in the bottom half of the inning, but that was the only blemish on his night.

Mariners ace Felix Hernandez throws complete-game gem Friday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/25/2015) Mariners starting pitcher Felix Hernandez threw his 10th-career complete-game shutout during a 2-0 win Friday against the Twins. Hernandez, who also had his 24th career complete game, allowed five hits and no walks, while striking out nine.

Hernandez (3-0) was dialed in from the start Friday. He struck out the side in the first inning and didn't allow his first hit until Trevor Plouffe's two-out single in the fifth inning.

Hernandez put two baserunners on in the sixth and seventh innings, but he escaped both jams unscathed. He retired the final seven batters he faced.

"When I started the game, I knew I had it," Hernandez said of his performance, per the Pioneer Press. "I had the stuff to throw a perfect game, but it didn’t happen."

The Mariners ace threw 73 of 102 pitches for strikes. He lowered his ERA to 1.61.

"Just a great job of commanding the zone, commanding the tempo, keeping guys off balance just enough to make all of his stuff work,'' Seattle manager Lloyd McClendon said.
