Felix Hernandez Perfect Game: 4th No-Hitter In Seattle Mariners History

Seattle Mariners pitcher Felix Hernandez threw the fourth no-hitter in franchise history on Wednesday against the Tampa Bay Rays, finishing a perfect game to lead the team to a 1-0 victory.

As the 23rd perfect game in MLB history, this performance now stands in the record books next to some all-time greats.

For the Mariners, their fourth no-hitter comes shortly after their last one. Earlier this season, Kevin Milwood went six innings and with the help of five other pitchers, Seattle went nine innings without giving up a hit. That game tied the MLB record for most pitchers to combine for a no-hitter.

Back in 1993, Chris Bosio helped Seattle beat the Boston Red Sox, 7-0, with his own no-hitter. And in 1990, Randy Johnson threw a no-hitter for a 2-0 victory against the Detroit Tigers.

Speaking of Johnson, Hernandez and his 12 strikeouts on Tuesday stand strong in a historical sense as well.

Hernandez didn't appear to be on such a strong pace, but he finished the day with five strikeouts in the last two innings.

The former AL Cy Young Award winner moves to 11-5 on the season with the win.
