Mariners SP Felix Hernandez to be skipped on Monday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/29/2015) Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon announced that ace Felix Hernandez will have his next start skipped. Hernandez had been scheduled to pitch on Monday in Houston, but that honor will instead go to left-hander Vidal Nuno.

This may be a blessing of sorts, as the last time Hernandez faced the Astros, he allowed eight runs while recording just one out in a 10-0 loss. 

Hernandez also struggled in the month of August, going 3-2 with an unsightly 6.60 ERA in five starts.


Mariners' Felix Hernandez loses second straight


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(8/22/2015) Mariners pitcher Felix Hernandez lost his second straight game, dropping to 14-8 on the year, Friday against the White Sox.

Heranandez gave up four runs on nine hits over six innings. In his last two starts, he's given up 14 runs on 21 hits over 8 1/3 innings.


Mariners' Felix Hernandez gets shellacked by Red Sox on Saturday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/15/2015) For the second straight game, a Mariners' starter allowed at least nine runs to the Red Sox. On Friday it was Mike Montgomery. Now, on Saturday, Felix Hernandez followed suit, as the Mariners lost a slugfest at Fenway by the score of 22-10.

Hernandez lasted just 2 1/3 innings on Saturday, allowing a career-high 10 earned runs on 12 hits. He was hit hard, early and often in this one, as he allowed three home runs for the first time this year.

Pablo Sandoval got the scoring started with a solo home run in the second. Jackie Bradley followed that with a two-run shot of his own, with two more runs coming in during that second inning.

The Mariners cut into the lead by scoring two in the top of the third, but the Red Sox answered right back with another five-run frame, thank in-part to a two-run home run by Alejandro De Aza off Hernandez.

This marks the fourth time this season that Hernandez allowed at least seven earned runs. In 2014, he had just one start of five runs allowed.


Mariners ace Felix Hernandez rebounds to win 14th


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/9/2015) Mariners ace Felix Hernandez took the mound Sunday after two straight poor starts. The odds were quite high against a third one.

Hernandez, who rarely pitches poorly twice in a row, was not overpowering against visiting Texas. But he allowed just two runs on six hits in seven innings to raise his record to 14-6 and lower his ERA to 3.11. He walked one and fanned five along the way.

He started out like a third consecutive bad performance was possible. A Rougned Odor double put the Rangers on the board in the second and a wild pitch in the third gave them a second run. But Hernandez shut Texas out the rest of the way and did not yield another hit until the seventh. He retired 10 of 11 at one point.

Hernandez had given up 11 runs in his previous 13 1/3 innings.


Mariners SP Felix Hernandez receives win in Monday's start


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(8/4/2015) Despite allowing 11 hits during the start, Mariners pitcher Felix Hernandez was able to receive a win during Monday's 8-7 win over the Rockies.

The 11 hits led to four runs over 6 2/3 innings. He also struck out nine and walked one. Hernandez is now 13-6 with a 3.13 ERA.

Hernandez has surrendered 23 hits and 11 runs in his last two starts. He has one quality start over his last three outings.


Mariners' Felix Hernandez gets roughed in loss on Wednesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/29/2015) Mariners ace Felix Hernandez got knocked around by the Diamondbacks on Wednesday, as Seattle lost the game 8-2. Hernandez gave up seven runs on a season-high 12 hits over 6 2/3 innings. He walked one and struck out seven, as he dropped to 12-6 on the year.

Hernandez got off to a rocky start right out of the gate, as he allowed four runs in the first inning, including a two-run home run to Welington Castillo.

Castillo touched up Hernandez again with a solo shot in the third inning. Hernandez allowed two more runs to score in the seventh before being pulled from the game. 

"Early on, the command was off," Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said, per MLB.com. "He actually settled down in the middle innings, started to throw the ball pretty decent, and elevated again late. They're an aggressive club. You've got to make quality pitches. And we just didn't do it the last two days."

The 12 hits allowed were the most for Hernandez since 2013. Despite the sub-par outing, Hernandez still owns a 2.50 and 39 strikeouts in his past six starts.


Mariners' Felix Hernandez wins 12th game of year


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

King Felix struck out seven, giving him 2,075 in his career. Hernandez moved into 65th place on the all-time strikeout list, one more than Fernando Valenzuela. 


Felix Hernandez picks up no-decision for Mariners


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(7/19/2015) Mariners starter Felix Hernandez gave up one run on five hits over six innings, Sunday against the Yankees.

Since earning a win in 6 2/3 innings on April 29, Hernandez is 0-4 with two no-decisions when he fails to complete at least seven innings.


Mariners' Felix Hernandez pitches perfect inning in All Star Game


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(7/14/2015) Mariners pitcher Felix Hernandez pitched a perfect inning in relief in Tuesday's All Star Game. 

Hernandez made his fourth career All Star appearance, retiring all three batters he faced in the third inning, striking out one. 

Hernandez has never allowed a run in the game, allowing two hits and striking out three in four career innings. He's pitched in each of the last three All Star Games. 


Mariners set rotation to open second half of season


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(7/13/2015) The Mariners will turn to pitcher Mike Montgomery to open the second half of the season Friday at the New York Yankees, reports MLB.com. It will be his first start at Yankee Stadium. He is 4-3 with a 2.29 ERA in eight starts this season.

"I've been impressed with how he goes about his business," Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said of Montgomery. "He's certainly not intimidated. He has a tremendous work ethic. I like what I see. I think he's got a chance to be pretty good."

After Montgomery's start Friday, the team will send Hisashi Iwakuma to the mound Saturday, followed by Felix Hernandez on Sunday. Hernandez could have his start moved depending if he pitches in Tuesday's All-Star game.

Mariners' Felix Hernandez gives up season-high 10 hits Saturday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/4/2015) Mariners ace Felix Hernandez allowed two runs and a season-high 10 hits over seven innings in a 2-0 loss to the A's on Saturday. Only one of the hits Hernandez gave up went for extra bases, but he was also out-pitched by Kendall Graveman in this one.

Hernandez (10-5) walked two and struck out six on Saturday. He gave up a run in the first inning and another in the seventh, as he really avoided any serious damage.

"It was tough today," said Hernandez, per MLB.com. "It was a battle all day long. I was just trying to make good pitches when I got runners in scoring position."

The right-hander has allowed a total of two runs over 13 innings in his last two starts, but has no wins to show for it. His season ERA sits at 3.02.


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.

Mariners P Felix Hernandez throws 8 scoreless innings


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

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.

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

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.
