Hernandez (2-2, 1.84) Blanton (8-10, 3.54)
Joe Blanton has a 1.19 ERA over his last eight starts, although, to be fair, he's only faced one legitimately good lineup over that stretch. Unfortunately, the Mariners certainly qualify as a bad one, so Felix will have to be on top of his game if he wants to come out of this with his first win over a contending team.
