Hernandez still has Rangers number

Felix Hernandez allowed only one run over eight innings and Justin Smoak hit the tiebreaking homer to lead the last-place Seattle Mariners past the AL West champion
Texas Rangers 3-1 Tuesday night.
Hernandez (13-12) became the first pitcher since Randy Johnson
in 2002 and only the seventh since 1980 to have a season with 30
quality starts (three earned runs or fewer while pitching at least
six innings). The right-hander lowered his AL-best ERA to 2.27 in
what might have been his last start of the season.
Smoak, traded to Seattle on July 9 as part of the deal that sent
left-hander Cliff Lee to the Rangers, hit a two-run homer in the
fourth off Scott Feldman (7-11) to snap a 1-1 tie. The rookie first
baseman's 12th homer of the season was his second in as many nights
against his former team.
