Mariners 6, Yankees 0: Felix Hernandez fans 11, makes statement on baseball’s biggest stage

Felix Hernandez went out and manhandled the defending World Series champs tonight, notching 11 Ks and holding the Yankees to four hits over eight scoreless innings. No pitcher had notched four consecutive complete games against the Yankees since Dave Stieb in 1983-84.
But manager Daren Brown pulled him with a pitch count of 117. Well, at least Brown is consistent. I’d have let Hernandez go for it, see if he could notch a quick out or two.
Hernandez is now 9-10. His ERA is 2.51, second best in the AL.
