(AP) -- Felix Hernandez's impressive streak may have come to an end, but facing a flat Boston Red Sox lineup should allow for a quick return to dominance.
He seeks his first road victory in seven tries Friday night when the Seattle Mariners begin a three-game series at Fenway Park.
Hernandez (13-4, 1.99 ERA) snapped his record streak of 16 straight outings with at least seven innings while yielding two runs or fewer in Saturday's 4-2 loss at Detroit. He was hit by two balls in play, prompting manager Lloyd McClendon to yank him after five innings in which he allowed seven hits - his most in 13 starts - and two runs. He also hit a batter for just the fourth time.
