Analysis: Hernandez had gone at least seven innings and allowed no more than two runs in his previous 16 starts. Tom Seaver set the previous mark of 13 in 1971.

July 26 3:08 PM PT4:08 PM MT5:08 PM CT6:08 PM ET18:08 ET22:08 GMT6:08 3:08 PM MST5:08 PM EST5:38 PM VEN2:08 UAE (+1)5:08 PM CT-Hernandez didn't receive a decision Friday but limited Baltimore to a run over seven innings with 10 strikeouts in Seattle's 2-1 loss.
Analysis: Don't count on many wins from Hernandez, who is 3-1 in his last nine starts but should have had more victories considering his 1.20 ERA in that stretch. The Mariners supplied him with two runs or fewer of support in six of those games.

July 12 12:37 PM PT1:37 PM MT2:37 PM CT3:37 PM ET15:37 ET19:37 GMT3:37 12:37 PM MST2:37 PM EST3:07 PM VEN23:37 UAE2:37 PM CT-Hernandez threw eight dominant innings to beat Oakland 3-2 on Friday.

Analysis: Hernandez's next turn was slated for Thursday, but manager Lloyd McClendon says he wants his best pitcher going up against the A's. McClendon says ''It just made sense.''

The right-hander, who won the AL Cy Young Award in 2010, is 7-1 with a 1.72 ERA in his past 11 starts.
