Hernandez Pitches Nine Innings as Mariners Beat Yankees 1-0

Aug. 5 (Bloomberg) -- Felix Hernandez struck out six batters in nine innings for his 10th victory as the Seattle Mariners defeated the New York Yankees 1-0 to even their three-game series at one game each.

Hernandez (10-5) allowed two hits in 101 pitches, which included 69 strikes.

“That was just special stuff today,” Mariners manager Eric Wedge told reporters after last night’s game. “I thought it was the most impressive start that I’ve ever seen as a manager.”

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said Hernandez stayed out of trouble with his pitches.

“He was never in any bad counts,” Girardi said. “You look up and he averaged about a ball per hitter. He just didn’t give us anything to hit.”

Mike Carp hit a run-scoring single in the second inning for the only score in the Major League Baseball contest at Yankee Stadium.

Hiroki Kuroda (10-8) allowed one run on seven hits and struck out four for the American League East-leading Yankees (62-44).
