A THIRD START FOR THE KING

THE KING. While he's already cemented his status as a Seattle Mariners' legend, ace pitcher Felix Hernandez has spent a surprising amount of time pitching for the Tacoma Rainiers while rehabilitating his right, throwing shoulder. Hernandez was knocked around in his first Tacoma rehab start on Tuesday, June 6, and was back in the dugout after throwing just two innings. However, the King was on his game during his next start on Sunday, June 11, giving up just one hit and a run in five innings of work to earn his 11th career win for the Rainiers. He will return to the mound at Cheney Stadium for one final tune-up on Saturday, June 17 at 7:05 p.m. against Salt Lake City. Tickets are going fast.
