Felix shines; M’s win

Felix Hernandez looked primed and ready for the regular season, pitching six shutout innings to help the Seattle Mariners beat the San Diego Padres 3-1 on Friday night. Hernandez allowed two hits and struck out nine – including six straight in the third and fourth innings. He threw 70 pitches and didn’t walk a batter. Padres starter Tyson Ross was effective early, but inefficiency cut his outing short. He gave up only one run but was pulled after throwing 94 pitches in 4 2/3 innings. Kelly Shoppach homered leading off the fifth for Seattle, snapping Ross’ scoreless streak at 15 1/3 innings.
