One night after the Nationals made Felix Hernandez look human, their own marquee starter lived up to the billing.
Stephen Strasburg had arguably his best road outing of 2014 with 7 2/3 innings of one-run ball, the only score coming on his final pitch of the night. His final line included eight strikeouts, six hits and no walks.
Helping Strasburg out was an early lead in the top...
Xander Bogaerts is back in the Boston Red Sox’s lineup for their game Saturday night against the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field.
The rookie shortstop spent the last week on the disabled list after being hit in the head by a pitch from Seattle Mariners ace Felix Hernandez on Aug. 22.
Bogaerts will play shortstop and bat eighth in the Boston lineup. Check out the video below for...
A week after an 89 mph from Seattle's Felix Hernandez struck Xander Bogaerts in the batting helmet, he is expected to return to the Red Sox lineup on Saturday, manager John Farrell said.
Bogaerts had been placed on the seven-day concussion disabled list the day after he was hit by the pitch, but Farrell said in Toronto on Friday night he had passed all tests. Bogaerts took batting...
Fifty times now we’ve done a Bryce Harper Home Run post. Last night in his first career game at Safeco Field in Seattle, Harper collected three hits including two singles off King Felix Hernandez.
The Nationals homered four times off Felix – the first time that’s ever happened in his career – and the Harper and Wilson Ramos went back to back off Joe Beimel.

Nationals 8, Mariners 3: Back on track. Nationals homer six times (video here), including four against Felix Hernandez, which made for many opportunities...
The Nationals entered Friday night in a three-game skid going up against the best right-hander of his generation. Few on their roster had ever faced Felix Hernandez, and those who had found no luck.
But for some reason, in a development that no one could have predicted, the Nats slapped around King Felix for the worst start of his 2014 season, the worst start he's had in a calendar...

After getting swept in Philadelphia earlier in the week, and getting a travel day on Thursday, the Nationals started a weekend series in Seattle Friday night. The Mariners are in the midst of a good year of their own, and their starting rotation includes one the best pitchers in all of MLB. Felix Hernandez got an extra day off to prep for Friday night...
There we go! Two good nights in a row have nearly washed from memory the four straight losing nights that came before. The picks came through for eleven correct out of fifteen and are now 17-7 for the last two days.Of the four incorrect picks, the Nationals hitting four homers off of Felix Hernandez was the biggest surprise. King Felix has not been king-like the last three outings...
The Washington Nationals (76-57) pounded four home runs off of AL Cy Young frontrunner Felix Hernandez and knocked two more against the Seattle Mariners’ (72-61) bullpen, cruising to an 8-3 win and snapping a three-game losing streak.
The impressive win maintains the Nats’ six-game lead in the NL East, as the Atlanta Braves wontheir third straight game tonight with a win over...
The Nationals broke their three game losing streak on Friday night, beating the Mariners 8-3 in Seattle. The Nats used the long ball, six on the night, to support a solid pitching performance by Jordan Zimmermann.
Washington hit six home runs in one game for only the fourth time in club history, but the most amazing aspect is that four of them came off arguably the best pitcher in...
When you’re riding a three-game losing streak, facing Seattle Mariners ace Felix Hernandez isn’t exactly endearing. But that was the challenge the Washington Nationals were up against on Friday. It was a challenge they conquered early, hammering four home runs off the king in the first four innings en route to the Nationals 8-3 win. Felix Hernandez has never allowed four homers...
SEATTLE (AP) Anthony Rendon hit one of Washington's four homers off Felix Hernandez, and the Nationals showed off their power in an 8-3 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Friday night that snapped a three-game losing streak.
Rendon hit a solo shot in the first, and Jayson Werth, Ian Desmond and Wilson Ramos also connected against Hernandez (13-5). It was the first time Hernandez...

The Washington Nationals (75-57), who have surged through August, will arrive on the West Coast a bit deflated. After being swept by the Phillies, the Nats will face the task of breaking out of a rut against the pitching-strong Seattle Mariners (72-60).
The Mariners claim the distinction of best ERA in Major League Baseball at 2.99, but the Nationals aren’t far behind with a second...
Felix Hernandez hasn't performed up to his lofty expectations recently, something the rest of the Seattle Mariners can relate to after a tough series against the worst team in baseball.
The Washington Nationals aren't exactly coming into this matchup on a positive note, either.
Hernandez and Jordan Zimmermann take the mound Friday night in Seattle as the top two pitching...

The Seattle Mariners took on the Boston Red Sox in game one of their last series of the season Friday night at Fenway Park. The Mariners had the edge on paper, as they threw their ace, Felix Hernandez, vs Boston’s Joe Kelly. However, Hernandez made one mistake to Yoenis Cespedes and saw him hammer a […]
Last night the game was Joe Kelly vs. Felix Hernandez, so not many people had this one inked down as an automatic win. However, Joe Kelly did his part and Cespedes took Hernandez deep, so it looked like the unthought of might happen until the 9th inning happened. Koji Uehara took the mound and had the worst relief performance of his career to not only blow the save, but give...
Yoenis Cespedes continued to drive in runs for the Boston Red Sox on Friday night by blasting a three-run homer off Seattle Mariners ace Felix Hernandez.

The ball actually cleared the Green Monster and landed near the Cask ‘n Flagon outside of Fenway Park.

Seattle Mariners ace Felix Hernandez is widely considered the best pitcher in the American League. Coming into today at 13-4 with a 1.99 ERA, he was in the Top 5 of both stats (along with strikeouts). It’s not often he gives up one square, but recent Boston Red Sox acquisition Yoenis Cespedes did just that. Watch (via MLB.com) as he connects with a Green Monster clearing...
5:15 p.m.: Yoenis Cespedes is in the Red Sox’s starting lineup.
Cespedes left Thursday’s game against the Angels before the fourth inning because of a personal matter. Red Sox manager John Farrell later said that it was a family medical emergency, though the skipper wouldn’t offer any additional details out of respect for Cespedes’ privacy.
Cespedes will play left field and...
The Boston Red Sox had one of their weakest offensive showings of the season on Thursday, and they’ll likely have their hands full on Friday night, too.
The Red Sox will open a three-game series with the Seattle Mariners at Fenway Park, and Mariners ace Felix Hernandez will get the ball. One night after being one-hit by Matt Shoemaker and the Los Angeles Angels, the Sox now have...
If Miggy were a Russian nesting doll, the first doll under him would be Avisail Garcia. They look like so similar they could do Sister, Sister-type stunts. "I don't want to face Felix Hernandez today, you take my jersey and you face him...Then take my algebra exam." "Okay, sis, but you have to go out with Bobby for me. Pinky swear!" That's them conspiring...
The Seattle Mariners are playing winning baseball and are in the thick of a pennant race. Many Mariners are having career years and breakout seasons. Looking at their roster and the numbers they’re accumulating, there’s a good chance that several Mariners players have a chance to take home some regular season hardware.
The MVP, CY Young, Manager of the Year and the Rookie of...
