Felix Hernandez will try to continue his winning ways and end the Seattle Mariners' three-game skid on Monday night, as the team faces the Minnesota Twins in the first game of a four-game series on the road in Minneapolis.

Hernandez has been stellar of late, and will ride a two-month-long hot streak that has seen him win eight of his last 13 starts, as well as pitch the 23rd perfect game in Major League Baseball history. The Mariners ace comes into the contest with a 12-5 record on the year and a 2.54 ERA.

Starting for the Twins will be right-hander Liam Hendriks, who is 0-6 with a 7.06 ERA.

Game Date & Time: Monday, Aug. 27, 5:10 p.m. PT
