SEATTLE, WA. — Felix Hernandez watched the Brewers score twenty runs in the first two games of the series against his Mariners; on Sunday, he outdueled Milwaukee’s Wily Peralta in a 2-0 Seattle win.
Peralta was outstanding, allowing just the 2 runs over 8 innings (one scored on a wild pitch). But “King Felix” was in Cy Young-like form; he went 8 scoreless frames, striking out 9, and allowing just 4 hits.
Hernandez (12-5) leads the American league with a 2.28 earned run average; he’s 2nd in strikeouts with 178.
The Crew, 4-3 on the 9 game road trip, have Monday off before embarking on a 2 game series in Texas.
Cincinnati visits Miller Park on Thursday.
