Cruz’s three-run homer in ninth lifts Felix and Mariners to 3-0 victory over Rays

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Felix Hernandez and Chris Archer. This figured to be a pitchers’ duel Wednesday afternoon at Tropicana Field, and the two aces sure didn’t disappoint. Enter Rays closer Brad Boxberger. And cue up Nelson Cruz. Boxberger replaced Archer to start the ninth inning, struck out two hitters, then walked two hitters…and Cruz then crushed a fastball for a three-run homer into the Rays’ Touch Tank. It was a 430-foot drive. It was Cruz’s 18th homer of the season. And it was sufficient for Felix, who completed a four-hit shutout. Archer dazzled in a 12-strikeout...

Mature Felix Hernandez leads Mariners to 4-3 win over Blue Jays

Felix Hernandez pitched smartly against a largely overmatched Blue Jays lineup Early in his career, Felix Hernandez was often guilty of employing a simplistic approach on the mound. It was a shame, because his stuff was present from day one: Felix regularly unleashed fastballs in the upper nineties, snapped wicked sliders and spun tight, hard curveballs: The changeup? Well, the changeup wasn't always there, but his best ones were as hellish as those of recent vintage. Frustratingly, his overall results lagged behind what his right arm was capable of producing, undone by bad command and a...

Sox figure out Felix

Sox figure out Felix

SEATTLE — It looked like a mismatch.Over the previous 14 games, the Red Sox had scored a grand total of 34 runs, not exactly what they bargained for from an offense that was supposed to strike fear in opposing pitchers. And now, they had to face Mariners ace Felix Hernandez – “King Felix” to you and me -- who was on a roll like any other in his dominant career.Why even bother playing?

Red Sox dethrone King

Red Sox dethrone King

SEATTLE -- Felix Hernandez has finally lost.King Felix was dethroned by Rick Porcello, who is shedding his reputation as a sinkerballer and looking more like a complete pitcher with every start.“We're seeing a little bit more power, more velocity than maybe we anticipated,” manager John Farrell said after Porcello out-dueld Hernandez in the Red Sox’ 4-2 win on Saturday night. “And who knows, maybe he's just physically maturing as he's getting into his mid-20s."

Hernandez not in top form as Mariners fall 4-2 to Red Sox

SEATTLE — Felix Hernandez’s winning streak came to an end Saturday on a night when he wasn’t sharp, lost command after an apparent leg injury and the Seattle Mariners couldn’t bail him out in a 4-2 loss to Boston. Hernandez had won his first six decisions this season, had won seven in a row dating to last year and had won his last four decisions against the Red Sox over the last four seasons. This was the law of averages, maybe. More likely, it had something to do with whatever occurred in the sixth inning to throw him off-kilter. The … Read more »
