Mariners ace Felix Hernandez was named the American League Player of the Week for June 2 – June 8th. Hernandez went 1-0 over two starts with a 1.29 ERA, one walk and 23 strikeouts in 14 innings.

In a make-up game in New York Monday, June 2, Hernandez allowed two runs on eight hits with eight strikeouts over 7 innings in the Mariners 10-2 victory over the Yankees. It was his fifth straight victory. Then on Sunday, the 2010 A.L. Cy Young Award winner allowed four hits with one walk and a career-best 15 strikeouts over 7 shutout innings to lead the Mariners to a 5-0 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays.

On the season, King Felix is 8-1 with a 2.39 ERA, 17 walks and 106 strikeouts in 98 innings pitched over 14 starts.

This is Hernandez’s second career weekly honor. He was first named Player of the Week August 20, 2012 after he threw a perfect game against Tampa Bay earlier that week.
