Seattle Mariners pitcher Felix Hernandez set a modern MLB record on Wednesday night by recording a 14th consecutive start with seven-plus innings pitched and two or fewer runs allowed, as reported by MLB.com's Greg Johns.
The record was previously held by Hall of Famer Tom Seaver, who recorded 13 such outings in a row for the New York Mets in 1971.
For his record-setting outing, Hernandez pitched seven solid innings against the Cleveland Indians, allowing only four hits and two runs while striking out five.
Unfortunately for King Felix, his teammates didn't offer much support against Cleveland ace Corey Kluber, who became the first pitcher in the last 100 seasons to face just 28 batters over nine innings in back-to-back outings. The Indians right-hander needed just 85 pitches to best Hernandez in one of the better pitching matchups of the season.
