Is the Monarchy Dead?

I watched the Yankees vs Mariners last night. I wanted to see the pitching duel between Michael Pineda and King Felix. Well it wasn’t much of a pitching duel. Here’s the lines.

Pineda- 6 IP 7H 2ER 2BB 9K
Hernandez- 4 2/3 IP 6H 7ER 5BB 4K

Felix walked 3 batters in one inning and gave up 5 runs in another. Mark Teixeira jacked a grand slam off of Felix in the 5th. Teixeira has more home runs off Hernandez than any other batter. He also now holds the record for the most home runs at SAFECO Field as an opposing batter with 18 total.

Felix looked completely uncomfortable last night on the mound after the first 2 innings. His face said I wish I was anywhere else but here. Kudos to the veteran Yankee line-up that had no problem working the count and getting on base when they needed.

Today full slate of games with 2 double headers! Enjoy some baseball!
