The Yankees (62-44) lost 1-0 to Felix Hernandez and the Seattle Mariners (51-58) in the broiling heat of the Bronx on Saturday afternoon in what was a great pitcher’s duel between Hernandez and Hiroki Kuroda. Unfortunately for the Yankees it was Kuroda who got zero run support not King Felix.

Hernandez was stellar as usual going the complete nine innings giving up no runs on only two hits and striking out six Yankees all in 101 pitches.  The only two Yankee hits were a Robinson Cano double in the first inning and an Ichiro leadoff single in the bottom of third. Hernandez is an astonishing 4-0 with a 0.20 ERA in his last four starts in Yankee Stadium.

The lone run of the ball game came in the top of the second on a two out RBI single from Mike Carp scoring John Jaso.

Hiroki Kuroda went 6 1/3 gave up one run on seven hits and struck out four. The loss puts Kuroda’s record at 10-8.  

Mariners shortstop Brendan Ryan left the game in the top of the seventh after being hit by pitch on his elbow.

The Yankees will play the Mariners again on Sunday afternoon. Hisashi Iwakuma (2-2 4.10) will start for the Mariners while Freddy Garcia (4-5 5.10) will go for the Yankees. Pregame coverage begins at 12:30, first pitch at 1:05 right here on 104.5 The Team ESPN Radio.
