Screen Shot 2013-07-13 at 6.32.55 PM

Felix Hernandez went eight scoreless innings tonight and Yoervis Medina finished off the ninth as the Mariners posted a 6-0 victory. The Mariners keep up their pace of six runs per game so far in July by getting exactly that many tonight.

9:08 p.m.: Justin Smoak just hit a three run homer to center off Jered Weaver in the sixth inning to break this game open at 4-0. Weaver retired the first two batters he faced, then yielded singles to Kendrys Morales and Kyle Seager.

Smoak stepped up next and unloaded on the first pitch he saw. Michael Saunders then singled to knock Weaver from the contest.

8:28 p.m.: The Mariners opened the scoring in the fourth inning with a bit of help from the Angels as three straight singles by Kendrys Morales, Kyle Seager and Justin Smoak produced a run and a 1-0 lead. Morales looked like he’d be an easy out at home when he was waved around third on the Smoak single to right field.

But the throw bounced in the dirt and catcher Hank Conger — who thought he had it — let it get by him. The play was initially ruled an error on Conger, but the official scorer has now changed it and taken the error off the ¬†scoreboard, so Smoak gets an RBI.

6:55 p.m.: Last month, with the Mariners trying to cap off a winning road trip, Felix Hernandez was spotted an 8-1 lead y the fifth inning in Anaheim against the Los Angeles Angels. He instead gave up six runs that frame, left the game with an 8-7 lead, then watched the bullpen fritter it away twice in an eventual defeat.

Now, he gets to face the Angels again with a chance for the Mariners to win this final series before the All-Star Break. Let’s see which Hernandez shows up tonight.
