Mariners Vs. Red Sox Final Score: Felix Hernandez Pitches Masterpiece In 1-0 Win

The Boston Red Sox have an adoring legion of fans from coast to coast. On Thursday night, some of those fans came to Safeco Field to watch their team take on the Seattle Mariners. Luckily, the M's left those Sox fans with precious little to cheer about. Seattle ace Felix Hernandez pitched an absolute gem and the Mariners walked off with a 1-0 victory.

King Felix did not allow a baserunner until the third inning, when he gave up back-to-back singles with two outs. Hernandez would allow just three more hits and a walk over the rest of the game, as he pitched a complete-game shutout that included 13 strikeouts.

Boston starter Franklin Morales was no slouch either, allowing three hits and two walks over seven innings and striking out seven Mariners along the way.

The only scoring, appropriately, came in the bottom of the ninth. With one out, Casper Wells hit a double. The Red Sox intentionally walked Justin Smoak to get to Miguel Olivo, but the Mariners sent in pinch hitter John Jaso, who promptly singled home Wells on the first pitch he saw for the big win.

The Mariners will try to do it again on Friday night, although perhaps with more run support this time.
