FELIX HERNANDEZ

See? This is why I made Albert Pujols jokes almost seemingly out of desperation. Because it was a foregone conclusion that as soon as the Mariners faced him, he would go all former self on Seattle. Jerk.

Felix was burned by the home runs yesterday, specifically the grand slam. That grand slam was first made possible thanks to an infield hit that Brendan Ryan just couldn't make the play on, then a flared single off an 0-2 count and finally a sacrifice bunt turned single. It was a very Mariners way to load the bases, but pinch hitter Alberto Callaspo did a very un-Mariners thing by turning on a 0-1 fastball that wasn't put in a bad spot (up and in) and ballooning it into the right field seats.

An outing for Steve Delabar with no home runs allowed is a good one. He barely even had a chance to yield one as only one single ball in play was put into the air.

SHAWN KELLEY

A completely clean inning for Shawn Kelley in the ninth. Those are usually boring, but one reason I like compiling these charts is that they reveal patterns that otherwise might have gone noticed. Of the 17 pitches Shawn threw, 12 were sliders! That's not unprecedented for Kelley either as a quick look at his season totals shows that he's been throwing his slider more often than his fastball. Granted every season in Seattle has been a very small sample for Kelley, but this is a big change.
