Mariners Hernandez named AL Pitcher of the Month
In August Felix Hernandez had a perfect game August 15th against the Rays, and now he gets the American League Pitcher of the Month honor.
During his nearly perfect month Hernandez went 4-0 with a 1.08 ERA in five starts.
Hernandez won three 1-0 shutouts in the month.
He also went 7 2/3 innings in a 5-1 victory over the Indians and received a no-decision against the Angels when he gave up four earned runs and five hits in seven innings.
Hernandez's award makes back-to-back AL Pitchers of the Month for Seattle.
Jason Vargas earned the honor in July.
