King Felix Hernandez, who was robbed of the Cy Young last year, became the first pitcher to shutout the Yankees at the new Yankee Stadium last night, leading the Seattle Mariners to a 7-0 win. The Mariners King Felix and Cliff Lee pitched back-to-back complete games against the Yankees.
Talk about cosas raras, rare things, the Yankees haven't had back-to-back complete games thrown against them at home since 1991, when Jim Abbott and Mark Langston of the then California Angels managed the feat.
We haven't seen much of the Mariners this year, but it does not compute. How can they be this bad?
