The King

Felix was on fire last night. At least for innings 1-5. He became the 13th player in the AL to strike out the side on 9 pitches, the first Mariner to do so. Everything was working for him last night, the slider was sliding and the fastball was hitting 98 MPH. If you ever get the chance to watch this kid pitch, take it.

He is your ace of the Mariner staff, period.

As outstanding as that is, I'm still more impressed by this: 4 K's in one inning...
