Seattle, WA (Sports Network) - Felix Hernandez spun eight innings of one-run
ball Monday as the Seattle Mariners downed the Texas Rangers, 6-1, in the
opener of a three-game set at Safeco Field.
Hernandez (4-3) scattered six hits and walked two while fanning seven. Ichiro
Suzuki and Jesus Montero knocked in two runs apiece and Dustin Ackley also
plated a run as the Mariners won their fourth straight contest.
Yu Darvish (6-2) allowed five runs -- four earned -- on just four hits, but
walked a career-high six batters over four full frames, marking the shortest
outing of his brief major league career.
Mitch Moreland provided the offense with his solo blast in the eighth, but the
Rangers lost for the second time in three tries.
