Analysis: Hernandez started Sunday's game against the Oakland Athletics with 1,995 strikeouts. He fell behind Fuld 3-1 before striking him out looking at a fastball for No. 2,000.

Analysis: King Felix was in fine form over the weekend. He has reached double digit strikout totals in two of his three starts this season, and his ERA now sits at 2.37.
Apr. 13 3:32 PM PT4:32 PM MT5:32 PM CT6:32 PM ET18:32 ET22:32 GMT6:32 3:32 PM MST5:32 PM EST6:02 PM VEN2:32 UAE (+1)5:32 PM CT-Hernandez was mediocre Sunday at Oakland, giving up three runs and eight hits over five innings in the 8-7 win, though he didn't earn the victory.
Analysis: Hernandez only struck out one batter, marking just the fifth time in 305 starts he's failed to strike out at least two.
Apr. 12 3:49 PM PT4:49 PM MT5:49 PM CT6:49 PM ET18:49 ET22:49 GMT6:49 3:49 PM MST5:49 PM EST6:19 PM VEN2:49 UAE (+1)5:49 PM CT-Hernandez was removed from his Sunday start at Oakland after five innings as a precaution because of tightness in his right quadriceps muscle.
Analysis: After falling behind 3-0, Seattle rallied with a four-run sixth to take the lead and keep Hernandez in position to win - and keep intact his unbeaten streak at the Coliseum dating to 2009. In the bottom of the fifth, athletic trainer Rick Griffin and manager Lloyd McClendon came to the mound to check on Hernandez. The right-hander stayed in the game. He was trying for his 20th victory against the A's, which would pass John Lackey for most among active pitchers.

Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon made it official on Saturday. Hernandez will pitch April 6 in Seattle against the AL West champion Los Angeles Angels.
Analysis: This will be the eighth career opening-day start for Hernandez. He is 5-0 with a 1.52 ERA in previous openers. McClendon had previously said he was ''99.999 percent'' sure Hernandez would be the starter, and now has made it 100 percent certain.
