Like everything else about last night’s All-Star game Jose Fernandez was overshadowed by Mariano Rivera, but the Marlins rookie had a pretty eventful evening too.
Fernandez was the youngest All-Star pitcher at age 20 and threw a 1-2-3 sixth inning, setting down former MVP Dustin Pedroia, former MVP Miguel Cabrera, and current MLB home run leader Chris Davis in order.
Fernandez struck out Pedroia and Davis, and in doing so became just the third under-21 pitcher in All-Star game history with multiple strikeouts. Via Manny Navarro of the Miami Herald, the other two are Bob Feller and Dwight Gooden. That’s some nice company for one of the least talked about young stars in baseball.
