One more time Felix Hernández shined with the Mariners

Posted by Dubraswka Aguilar on August 12, 2014

The Venezuelan Felix Hernández one run in seven strong innings and the Dominican Robinson Cano helped provide him with a jolt of run support as the Seattle Mariners romped to an 11-1 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays.
Hernández (13-3) made his 16th straight start of at least seven innings while allowing two earned runs or less, and tied Gaylord Perry‘s record.  Thus is the third Venezuelan pitching more than 2000 innings in the Major League. The other two are:  Freddy García and Johan Santana.

The "King Félix" needed just 96 pitches to get through seven and his only mistake was Jose Bautista's solo home run in the fourth. The only other Toronto batter to get a hit, Colby Rasmus, who had two and is now 7 for 10 against Hernandez.

The Venezuelan star struck out eight, walked none and lowered his ERA to 1.95 for the season. Hernandez has a record of 9-2 with a 1.41 during the 16-game streak.
Cano ignited a seven-run sixth inning with his 10th homer of the season.
Mike Zunino followed with a triple. A double by the Venezuelan Endy Chavez ended the night for Toronto starter Drew Hutchison (8-10). 

The Bluejays, made with the Dominicans Melky Cabrera de 4-0, Bautista de 2-1 and one home by Juan Francisco 3-0.
