King Felix Hernandez

Hernandez (W 2-0) 9 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 6 SO, 0.00 ERA

Everybody came out to see Dice-K, but King Felix stole the show! Hernandez lost his bid for a no-hitter when J.D. Drew got an eighth inning leadoff single up the middle that eluded Felix and a diving Jose Lopez. “I asked Jose after the inning, ‘Why didn’t you catch that, bro?'” Hernandez said. “I was just kidding.”

The King was dealing and has yet to allow a 2007 run in two starts. Ironically he may have had a better game in his first start against Oakland when he K’d 12 A’s and got 12 groundouts over eight innings, he didn’t even need an outfield, although he was roughed up for three basehits.
