Rangers knock out Hernandez, defeat M's

Seattle ace Felix Hernandez was forced
out of the game when he took a line drive off his right forearm
during the Rangers' six-run fourth inning Saturday, and Texas used
a patchwork lineup to beat the Mariners 7-3 one day after it
clinched the AL West title.
The Rangers had already scored four times in the fourth when
Hernandez (14-14) was struck by Michael Young's liner. The reigning
AL Cy Young Award winner fell to the ground as the ball caromed
toward third base for a single.
Hernandez was attended to by a team trainer, and was soon
walking to the dugout, grimacing in pain and done for the day in
his final start of the season.
