  1. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Aug 22, 2012, 6:13 AM EDT

    Nationals' Strasburg pitches in the rain during the second inning of their MLB game against Braves in Washington

    Nationals 4, Braves 1: I have been arguing against a Stephen Strasburg shutdown for a while now, but allow me to say that if those dudes are really gonna do that, I wish they would have done it before last night. Strasburg struck out ten in six innings, allowing a single run and winning his…

  2. No no-no, but Felix Hernandez beats Indians for 12th win

    Aug 22, 2012, 12:35 AM EDT

    Felix Hernandez

    Felix Hernandez didn’t make any sort of run at Johnny Vander Meer’s unbreakable record of back-to-back no-hitters Tuesday — he gave up a single to Jason Kipnis, the very first batter he faced — but he did limit the Indians to one run in 7 2/3 innings in a 4-1 victory. Meanwhile, the other Hernandez…

  3. Felix Hernandez: “I’m not going anywhere … I promise”

    Aug 21, 2012, 5:00 PM EDT

    Felix Hernandez

    Everyone wants to put Felix Hernandez in pinstripes, but Felix Hernandez was on KJR in Seattle this morning and he said that M’s fans shouldn’t worry a thing about it. When asked about his next contract, Hernandez said: “… you guys [will] be happy, “I’m not going nowhere  … I promise.” That part comes around…

  4. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    Aug 21, 2012, 6:07 AM EDT

    Jayson Werth, Danny Espinosa, Kurt Suzuki,

    Nationals 5, Braves 4: I suppose you can yell at Dan Uggla for messing up the play with the infield in and a runner on third in the 13th inning which allowed the winning run to score. But perhaps it’s also worth noting that the Braves played perhaps their most important game to date, in…

  5. Rays finish four-game sweep in Anaheim

    Aug 19, 2012, 6:56 PM EDT

    Matt Moore

    The Rays couldn’t manage so much as a hit or a walk Wednesday in Felix Hernandez‘s perfect game, but look at what they did to the Angels’ starters in four games since: Dan Haren: 3 2/3 IP, 7 H, 5 ER Jered Weaver: 3 IP, 8 H, 9 ER C.J. Wilson: 4 2/3 IP, 6…

  6. Struggling Dan Haren to have next turn skipped

    Aug 17, 2012, 8:02 PM EDT

    Dan Haren

    It’s not hard to see why the Angels aren’t winning. Here’s how their rotation has fared since the All-Star break: Jered Weaver: 5-1, 2.83 ERA Dan Haren: 2-2, 5.04 ERA Ervin Santana: 2-1, 5.06 ERA Zack Greinke: 1-1, 5.54 ERA (since being acquired) C.J. Wilson: 0-4, 5.61 ERA Besides Kevin Jepsen, all of the relievers…

  7. Robinson Cano returns, Mark Teixeira sits with sore wrist

    Aug 17, 2012, 6:26 PM EDT

    Mark Teixeira

    The Yankees have Robinson Cano back from a sore neck Friday in the opener of a three-game series against the Red Sox, but Mark Teixeira is absent from the lineup due to an inflamed wrist, the LoHud Yankees Blog reports. Teixeira initially injured the wrist on July 29 and missed a couple of games. “It’s…

  8. A Felix Hernandez trade would help Mariners, not hurt them

    Aug 16, 2012, 6:14 PM EDT

    Felix Hernandez

    So, yeah, the response to Wednesday’s “Seattle should probably trade Felix Hernandez” column wasn’t entirely positive. I understand it was a case of raining on the parade, and I’m sorry about that. Still, it was an angle of the story that needed to be covered. Now that I’ve had a day to think more on…

  9. The most predictable New York Daily News story ever

    Aug 16, 2012, 3:23 PM EDT

    Felix Hernandez

    I swear on a stack of Bibles that yesterday, while I was hanging around the NBC Sports Network studio watching Felix Hernandez polish off his perfect game, I said aloud that a New York paper was guaranteed to run the classic “the Yankees need to acquire King Felix” story today. I said that I’d bet…

    MLB.com put together a video showing all 27 outs from Felix Hernandez‘s perfect game yesterday, which is a fun way to re-watch history in six minutes:

  11. Watch as the Mariners’ Double-A affiliate celebrates Felix Hernandez’s perfect game

    Aug 15, 2012, 10:27 PM EDT

    Seattle Mariners v New York Yankees

    The Double-A Jackson Generals — who play their home games in Jackson, Tennessee — were over 2,300 miles away from the mound at Seattle’s Safeco Field when Mariners ace Felix Hernandez finished off his perfect game against the Rays on Wednesday afternoon. But they celebrated like they were there: As Zach Sanders of FanGraphs correctly…

  12. Felix Hernandez: MLB’s best young pitcher in 20 years

    Aug 15, 2012, 8:49 PM EDT

    Felix Hernandez

    That’s pretty defensible, right. Felix Hernandez debuted at 19, and while he wasn’t great right away — in fact, he was pretty disappointing his first three years — he’s provided a ton of value to the Mariners in going 96-72 with a 3.17 ERA in 230 career starts to date. Baseball-reference WAR rates him as…

  13. Mariners fans will always have King Felix’s perfect game

    Aug 15, 2012, 7:12 PM EDT

    Felix Hernandez

    Cherish Wednesday’s perfect game, Mariners fans, and enjoy King Felix’s Seattle tenure while it lasts. Let’s face it: there’s a good chance Felix Hernandez will end his Mariners career never having won a postseason game. The Mariners are set to finish in last place in the AL West for a third straight season and for…

  14. Felix Hernandez is about as perfect as any pitcher ever

    Aug 15, 2012, 6:17 PM EDT

    Felix Hernandez

    There wasn’t even a near-miss in this one. Felix Hernandez dominated the Rays from top to bottom on Wednesday, striking out 12 in a perfect game to beat Tampa Bay 1-0. It was his first career no-hitter and the first perfect game in Mariners history. As for the Rays, this is becoming old hat for…

  15. King Felix pitches perfect game against the Rays

    Aug 15, 2012, 5:09 PM EDT

    Felix Hernandez

    6:02 p.m EDT update: Hernandez is perfect, getting a called third strike on Sean Rodriguez to end the ninth. It’s the first perfect game in Mariners history, and the Rays became the first team ever to be on the losing end of three perfect games. Hernandez ended up striking out five of the final six…

  16. Max Scherzer takes over major league lead in strikeouts

    Aug 15, 2012, 5:00 PM EDT

    Max Scherzer

    It’ll be a short-lived lead, but Max Scherzer fanned 10 Twins over seven shutout innings Wednesday to move past teammate Justin Verlander for the major league lead with 178 strikeouts. He’s gotten there in just 140 2/3 innings, while Verlander has racked up his 174 strikeouts in 175 2/3 innings. If Scherzer maintains his current…

  17. Mariners grant Justin Smoak another look

    Aug 14, 2012, 6:23 PM EDT

    Justin Smoak

    It could be do-or-die time for Justin Smoak. With Mike Carp returning to the disabled list because of a strained groin, the Mariners brought Smoak back to the majors on Tuesday. He’ll likely play regularly at first base as the team tries to determine whether to include him in its plans for 2013. Smoak hit…

  18. Johnny Pesky’s terrific big-league start

    Aug 13, 2012, 6:00 PM EDT

    Johnny Pesky - 1949 Bowman

    Johnny Pesky didn’t finish his major league career with anything close to Hall of Fame numbers, but who knows what might have happened if he didn’t miss his age 23, 24 and 25 seasons to serve in World War II? I’ll admit that I didn’t realize just how good Pesky was early on before checking…

  19. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Aug 13, 2012, 5:30 AM EDT

    Rajai Davis

    Blue Jays 10, Yankees 7: Holy frijole, did you see Rajai Davis’ catch, robbing Casey McGehee of a home run in the seventh? The guy is like 5”9″ and the wall is like ten feet and he went Spud Webb on that bad boy. Or Spiderman. Or something. Just wow. Otherwise, the Jays beat the tar out…

  20. Franklin Gutierrez suffers setback with concussion

    Aug 12, 2012, 7:45 PM EDT

    franklin gutierrez getty

    Mariners center fielder Franklin Gutierrez can’t seem to catch a break. He has appeared in only 13 major-league games this year because of heel and head injuries, and it’s suddenly looking like he won’t make it back from his most recent disabled list stint before the conclusion of the 2012 regular season. According to Geoff…

  21. Mariners end Jered Weaver’s long winning streak

    Aug 12, 2012, 6:50 PM EDT

    Jesus Montero

    Jesus Montero took the normally unbeatable Jered Weaver deep twice Sunday as the Mariners topped the Angels in Anaheim 4-1. Weaver entered the day having won nine straight starts. He was 8-0 with a 0.92 ERA at home this year and 15-1 with a 2.13 ERA overall. His only previous defeat came in Texas back…

  22. Mike Trout robs third home run of the season

    Aug 12, 2012, 10:40 AM EDT

    trout ap

    Angels phenom Mike Trout is an American League MVP candidate primarily because of his gaudy offensive numbers, but he’s also been a standout defensively since his arrival near the end of April. The 21-year-old made another spectacular play on Saturday night in Anaheim, robbing his third home run of the season with a perfectly-timed leap…

  23. Oliver Perez (yes, that Oliver Perez) pitching well for Seattle

    Aug 8, 2012, 2:14 PM EDT

    Seattle Mariners v New York Yankees

    Mets fans aren’t going to like this very much, but after years of being a horrible pitcher and one season of not even playing in the majors Oliver Perez is thriving as reliever for the Mariners. Perez, who despite seemingly being around forever is still just 30 years old, tossed two scoreless innings last night…

  24. Ichiro’s amazing string of 1-fors continues

    Aug 5, 2012, 4:53 PM EDT

    Seattle Mariners v New York Yankees

    Ichiro Suzuki played in his 12th game for the Yankees in a 6-2 win over the Mariners on Sunday. Just like in the first 11, he had exactly one hit, no walks and no strikeouts. That makes for a few oddities: – His hitting streak with exactly one hit in each game is the longest…

  25. Felix Hernandez outduels Hiroki Kuroda in two-hit shutout against Yankees

    Aug 4, 2012, 4:17 PM EDT

    Felix Hernandez AP

    After CC Sabathia pitched a complete game against the Mariners last night, Felix Hernandez thoroughly dominated the Yankees this afternoon. King Felix allowed just two hits in a complete game 1-0 victory over the Bombers. He struck out six and walked a pair while throwing just 101 pitches. The Yankees didn’t get a runner in…
