The King of Seattle

Last night Felix Hernandez won his 5th game and is off to his first 5-0 start for the Seattle Mariners. King Felix is now showing those east of the Mississippi that he is a true number one starter. He won the Cy Young Award in 2010 and it’s sure looking like he wants another.

Nelson Cruz smacked his Major League Leading 14th home run last night to help the Mariners and Felix win their first game after losing four in a row to the Astros. The Mariners beat the Angels 3-2. King Felix allowed just one run on six hits over seven innings to lower his ERA to 1.73. The Mariners are now 6-0 when Hernandez starts and 5-15 in the rest of their games.
