Hernandez was actually in line for the win through six innings before allowing three straight hits to open the seventh without recording an out. The veteran right-hander was lifted for Astros reliever Tony Sipp, who failed to hold his inherited runners and allowed Seattle to tie the game after they were down 6-2 to start the inning.
