NEW YORK — Felix Hernandez dominated the New York Yankees in their own ballpark again, pitching his third shutout of the season to lead the Seattle Mariners to a 1-0 win on a sunny, sticky Saturday.
Hernandez outpitched Hiroki Kuroda (10-8) in a duel of right-handers who hadn't lost since June. Mike Carp hit an RBI single in the second inning for Seattle, which had its seven-game winning streak snapped the night before. The Yankees have lost 10 of 15.
After Robinson Cano doubled with two outs in the first, Hernandez (10-5) didn't allow another runner to second. He retired Curtis Granderson, Derek Jeter and Cano in order in the ninth, fanning Cano to end the game in a breezy 2 hours, 32 minutes.
King Felix has the lowest career ERA at the new Yankee Stadium of any pitcher with at least two starts. After his latest masterful performance, he lowered his ERA to 1.13 after his second shutout at the new ballpark. Overall, it was the seventh career shutout for the All-Star right-hander.
