Hernandez pitched seven shutout innings Thursday, allowing three hits and two walks with 11 strikeouts but received zero run support for no decision against the Angels.

A night after clinching the division, the Angels fielded a Triple-A lineup that never challenged Hernandez. But walking two against a lineup with seven recent callups is questionable. Far worse than that, though, the Mariners couldn't get past second base in the first six innings against two pitchers who entered with a combined 51 innings this season, depriving Hernandez of what easily should have been his 15th win. After a slight blip in late August, Hernandez has allowed only three runs in his last four starts. It was his sixth double-digit strikeout game as he set a career high with 236 strikeouts this season.

Hernandez pitched a strong seven innings Saturday, allowing two runs on seven hits and no walks with eight strikeouts against the A's.

Hernandez's one mistake was a pitch to Josh Donaldson that ended up in the seats. He gave up only one other extra base hit. It is the ninth time this season he has not issued a walk.

Hernandez threw six shutout innings in a no-decision Monday, allowing five hits while walking four and striking out eight Astros.

Hernandez lacked his usual command, needing 99 pitches (60 strikes) to get through six innings and tying a season-high with four free passes, but still battled to keep Houston scoreless. King Felix remains 14-5 on the year with a 2.12 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 217:41 K:BB ratio over 212 innings. Hernandez will take the hill versus the A's at home Saturday.

Hernandez struck out four and walked two while giving up one run on three hits over eight innings to earn his 14th win of the season Wednesday.

The damage came from an Adam Dunn home run in the fourth inning, but Hernandez was sharp otherwise while outpitching A's lefty Jon Lester. Hernandez is lined up for his next start Monday against the Astros, before a rematch with Lester and the A's at Safeco Field on September 14.

Hernandez gave up a season-high five earned runs on a career-high four home runs Friday, allowing 10 hits and one walk with one strikeout in seven innings in a loss to the Nationals.

Hernandez was up in the zone all night, and the Nationals made him pay. It was the third consecutive start in which he has not been his usual dominant self. He has allowed 10 runs in those three starts -- as many as he allowed in his previous nine starts. He had allowed just nine home runs in 27 starts before Friday's quadruple-bomb night.

Hernandez will have his next start pushed back from Wednesday to Friday.

The fact that Hernandez hasn't made it out of the sixth inning in either of his last two starts could factor into the Mariners looking to get him and extra two days of rest (they have an off day Thursday). Seattle could also be looking to pit Hernandez against the surging Nationals, thinking that a lesser pitcher might stand a chance to get the win Wednesday against the lowly Rangers. Either way, this has very little fantasy impact, as Hernandez is a must-start every week.

Hernandez allowed three runs on five hits, walking two while striking out seven over 5.2 innings, coming away with a no-decision in Seattle's come-from-behind win over Boston on Friday night.

All the damage came on one swing as Yoenis Cespedes tagged him for a three-run home run - just the third home run he has allowed all season with men on base. He'll try to get back on course against the Rangers in Seattle next time out.

Hernandez, who took a comebacker off his right hip in the fourth inning Saturday, said he is sore but not injured and will definitely make his next start, the Seattle Times reports.

Hernandez limped back to the dugout after the fourth inning but pitched another inning before being lifted with a high pitch count. It was only the second time this season that Hernandez failed to go at least six innings. He also saw his MLB-record streak seven innings with two runs or less end at 16 starts.

Hernandez's record streak ended Saturday as he went only five innings because of a high pitch count, allowing two runs on seven hits and no walks with three strikeouts at the Tigers.

Hernandez's MLB-record run of seven innings and two runs allowed ended at 16 starts. Hernandez didn't pitch poorly, though. He was squeezed by umpire Tony Randazzo, which led to manager Lloyd McClendon getting tossed in the second inning. That drove up his pitch count, as did the Tigers fouling off an impressive 19 pitches. Hernandez was hit in the right thigh by a comebacker to end the fourth inning and appeared to be hurt, but he pitched one more inning. With his pitch count at 92, the Mariners weren't taking any chances.
