Felix Hernandez hopes his offense can give him some support this time

Well, I guess this is when I’m supposed to say “Happy Felix Day!” Hopefully, Felix Hernandez will feel the same way about it once tonight’s game against the Texas Rangers is over.
Last weekend, he held the Oakland Athletics to a run over 7 2/3 innings and saw his twam lose 2-1 in 13. Tonight, he takes on Yu Darvish in a marquee matchup. The Mariners have gotten to Darvish a couple of times this season, so this one will be interesting.
The Mariners could do themselves a favor tonight by scoring multiple runs at some point before the final three innings. They tend to wait until the very end of games and as the last post pointed out, it’s a formula guartanteed to keep producing losses.
John Jaso is the best hitter on the team at the moment, so he’s batting cleanup tonight. Casper Wells is one of the best everyday hitters on the team and he’s hitting third.
