Hernandez's MLB-record run of seven innings and two runs allowed ended at 16 starts. Hernandez didn't pitch poorly, though.

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.
