Seattle Mariners’ two week struggle

Two Fridays ago, Felix Hernandez moved to 3-0 as the Seattle Mariners defeated the Oakland A’s to retake first place in the A.L. West. Almost two weeks later, that seems like a lifetime ago. Since that win, Seattle has gone 2-10 including an eight game losing streak. The worst part was over a six game stretch against two of the lower teams in baseball, the Marlins and Astros, Seattle...

The Seattle Mariners Run Aground For 8th Straight Loss

Is it time to jump ship yet? After losing 6 games in a row to the Texas Rangers and Miami Marlins one would think that coming home, having ace hurler Felix Hernandez on the hill, and having the luxury of the abysmal hitting Houston Astros to punch around that the Seattle Mariners would snap out of their losing streak. Think Again. Despite a team batting average of .191 the Astros...

Astros end losing streak at seven with win over Mariners

Monday’s 7-2 Astros win made little sense in the context of what came before it. The worst offense in the majors finally busted out against one of the greatest pitchers in the game: the Mariners’ Felix Hernandez. The Astros entered the game hitting .192. The righthanded ace they were facing came in with a 1.91 ERA on the season and a 2.00 ERA against the Astros lifetime. Why...

Mariners manager hands one to the Rangers

ARLINGTON, Texas - The Seattle Mariners gave the Texas Rangers two gifts in the eighth and ninth innings Wednesday. The first came from manager Lloyd McClendon, who inexplicably removed starting pitcher Felix Hernandez in the eighth inning despite the fact he held a 2-0 lead and had only thrown 96 pitches. That would provide the backdrop for the Rangers' fourth walk-off win of...

Seattle Mariners: Week in review

COOLING DOWN:  After winning their home opener, the Seattle Mariners have dropped three of their last four games.  Felix Hernandez’s third win of the season propped the Mariners back into first in the A.L. West for a day, but they now trail the A’s after dropping the final two games of that three game set.  Still, on the plus side, the Mariners have went 6-5 on a rough stretch...

Mariners 6, A’s 4 — Felix Hernandez improves to 3-0 on the season

Felix Hernandez continues to pitch well against the A’s and add his name to the record book. On a chilly Friday night in front of a packed Safeco Field – most of them holding up “K” placards and wearing free bright gold t-shirts bearing his name for the Supreme Court – the Mariners’ ace added to another accomplishment into his growing chapter of the organization’s...

Mariners beat Athletics, 3-1, behind Felix Hernandez

In its latest iteration, the old Oakland Coliseum has been rebranded as the O.co Coliseum thanks to corporate sponsor Overstock.com. Based on what’s transpired the past few seasons, they could just as easily call it King Felix’s Palace. There are plenty of reasons for the Mariners not to like the worn-down relic, but the place is special for their ace pitcher. And that’s good...
