Why don't the Tigers have a cheering section for Justin Verlander?

With fan sections like the "King's Court" and "Keuchel's Korner" growing in popularity, should the Tigers get in on the act? You should be watching Felix Hernandez already, but the next time you tune into one of his home starts, listen closely. Whenever Hernandez gets to a two-strike count on the batter, the chant begins. It starts softly, but quickly builds into an audible roar picked up by television cameras around the park. "K! K! K! K! K!" More often than not, King Felix grants his court's wishes with a strikeout. The King's Court, a special section reserved for home games where...

Extra Wild: Angels win pitching duel against Mariners 3-2 after walk-off wild pitch in 10th

Felix Hernandez and Hector Santiago brought their A game, so we saw yet another well pitched, low-scoring affair. After a Huston Street blown save, the Angels had to rely on some huge Mariners mistakes to take a 3-2 win in the 10th. Angels 3  Mariners 2 If you thought yesterday was a classic, well-pitched, low scoring affair for the Angels, then today’s game was it’s boundary-pushing, blockbuster sequel. The name of the game was hot arms and cold bats, and featured some sweet Ace-On-Ace action in Hector Santiago vs. Felix Hernandez. As the blazing Summer sun got fans sweating,...

Hernandez, Mariners outduel Bumgarner, Giants

On this night, the King was just a little bit better than the World Series MVP. Though it's quite certain Felix Hernandez would trade his crown for any one of…

Giants hit Felix Hernandez about as well as expected, lose 2-0

Madison Bumgarner pitched about as well as he can. There were just ... complications. I don't know if there's a pitching matchup I want to see more than Felix Hernandez vs. Madison Bumgarner. It could be Kershaw, but we've seen that over and over, and dude's in kind of a bad place right now. Maybe Chris Sale? But he's still an unknown compared to Hernandez, a blip on the geological scale. Cycle through the list of pitchers ... Wainwright, Scherzer, Price ... I really think that Bumgarner/Hernandez is the most watchable pitching matchup for a Giants fan right now. Wait. No. That's not...

Felix Hernandez throws eight shutout innings in Mariners’ 2-0 shutout of Giants

Felix Hernandez throws eight shutout innings in Mariners’ 2-0 shutout of Giants

Hernandez bounces back from awful outing in Houston to win duel against San Francisco’s Madison Bumgarner, who strikes out nine in eight innings.

Hernandez outduels Bumgarner as Mariners beat Giants 2-0

SEATTLE — Well, what’d you expect Wednesday night when the pitching match-up at Safeco Field was Felix Hernandez and Madison Bumgarner? This was an absolute dandy and it turned, not surprisingly, on a defensive misplay. A catch that should have been made and wasn’t. The Seattle Mariners turned that into two runs. And Hernandez turned that into a 2-0 victory over the San Francisco Giants in front of a crowd of 34,844 on a gorgeous night. The mistake came in the sixth inning after Mike Zunino pulled a one-out single through the left side — just the second hit against Bumgarner. Austin...

Game thread: Mariners vs. Giants — June 17

Felix Hernandez takes the hill for the Mariners as San Francisco counters with their ace Madison Bumgarner. Hernandez will look to bounce back from his poor performance in Houston, where he allowed eight runs in just 1/3 of an inning.

Felix looks merely human as Mariners get shelled

Felix Hernandez pitches the worst game of his career OR a pitch-by-pitch analysis of Jesus Sucre's debut as a professional relief pitcher. There is just one fact that fully explains how today’s game went for the Mariners: Felix Hernandez and Jesus Sucre both pitched in the same game. That’s not a typo and it wasn’t the result of a massive outburst by the Mariners offense. No, this was very real and was the product of Felix Hernandez’s worst start of his eleven year career. At least the Astros got it over with quickly. Felix recorded the only out of his brief appearance in this game...

Mariners’ Hernandez has worst outing ever in loss to Astros.

HOUSTON — It’s easy to remember the brilliance. During his 11-year big-league career, Felix Hernandez has had so many outstanding outings. But there have also been a few stinkers mixed in during that time, including 12 starts where he pitched three innings or fewer and 27 starts where he allowed seven runs or more. But […]

Hernandez gives up eight runs in first inning in Mariners’ 10-0 loss to Astros

HOUSTON — Say we’re discussing existential philosophy. Or metaphysical possibilities. Theoretical truths. Women. Or something else most of us don’t understand. (Hand up.) We might learn that, yes, it’s possible that things could have gone worse Friday night in the first inning for the Seattle Mariners in what turned into a 10-0 loss to the Houston Astros at Minute Maid Park. Or maybe not. This was a freaking fiasco on an epic scale. Not only unprecedented but pretty much unfathomable. Mariners ace Felix Hernandez, the long-hailed King, faced nine hitters and gave up eight runs before...

Rays vs. Mariners, game three recap: King Felix too much for Kiermaier to handle alone

Outlaw was the only Ray able to touch him. Felix Hernandez clearly wants to be a Yankee. Maybe he's already on the payroll. Two starts ago against the Rays, he threw a complete game shutout where he walked no one and struck out eight batters. Last start against the Yankees, he couldn't make it out of the fifth inning, and gave up seven earned runs while walking five batters and striking out four. So of course, back against the Rays, he was his normal self again, with seven one-run innings. The Rays actually worked three walks against him, which is a lot, but they weren't able to back them...

Felix Hernandez gets 9th win as losing streak ends at 7 games

The doors to the Mariners’ bullpen opened. And there was a momentary pause from fans as a gangly figure appeared and began loping his way to the pitcher’s mound and it wasn’t Fernando Rodney.
