Mariners vs. Angels: Felix Hernandez Takes The Mound On Saturday

If the city of Seattle did not already love Felix Hernandez at the start of this season, they sure do now. The toast of the town the past few weeks since throwing a perfect game against the Rays, King Felix has become an icon for the Mariners and has been a key part of the team turning their season around.

On Saturday night with the Angels in town, Hernandez will take the mound for the M's at Safeco Field. He is 13-5 this season with a 2.43 ERA. And while those numbers are impressive, his last three starts have been even better: during his last 25.2 innings of work, the King is 3-0 with a 0.35 ERA and 22 strikeouts. Those are video game numbers.

The Angels will start righty Ervin Santana. He has not pitched well this season, entering with a 7-11 record and 5.45 ERA. Despite his recent struggles, Santana is 11-7 with a 3.99 ERA in his career against the Mariners.

First pitch is scheduled for 1:05 p.m. this afternoon in Seattle.
