Hernandez rocked by Rangers, M's lose 6 - 3

Posted: Updated:

SEATTLE, Wash. - (AP) Mariners ace Felix Hernandez saw his string of 18 consecutive quality starts snapped in his shortest outing in nearly a calendar year, outlasted by Texas lefty Matt Harrison in the Rangers' 6-3 win over Seattle on Saturday.

Hernandez lasted just 4 1-3 innings, tagged for five runs and eight hits by the Rangers. It was the first time since May 9 of last season that Hernandez failed to go at least five innings and ended a string of quality starts dating to Aug. 1.

Harrison worked extra to pick up his first victory of the season. The young left-hander threw 127 pitches, making it through six innings against the light-hitting Mariners. Harrison's victory made him the first Texas pitcher ever to record 14 wins in his first 31 games.
