Felix's Perfect Day

SEATTLE, WA - Felix Hernandez has made a name for himself in Seattle Mariners'  history.  King Felix tossed a franchise-first perfect game, striking out 12 along the way in 113 pitches.

The Mariners went on to shut out Tampa Bay 1-0.  Seattle's only run on a Jesus Montero single to left, driving former Lewis-Clark State graduate Brenan Ryan.

Hernandez's perfect game is only the third this season.  Chicago's Philip Humber tossed on against the Mariners in April, and Matt Cain had one against Houston in June.

This is just the fourth no-hitter in franchise history for Seattle.  The most recent one came back in June when Kevin Millwod, Brandon League, Tom Wilhelmsen, Charlie Furbush, Stephen Pryor, and Lucas Luetge threw a combined no-hitter against the Dodgers.  Back in 1993, Chris Bosio tossed the second no-no in Mariner's history in a 2-0 win over the Boston Red Sox.  Rewind three more years from that, and Randy Johnson pitched a no-hitter against Detroit in June of 1990.
