Felix Hernandez’s penultimate start has rough beginning as Mariners’ five-game win streak ends

BALTIMORE — The Mariners’ five-game winning streak ended quietly on Friday when the offense struggled, and the Baltimore Orioles pounded starter Felix Hernandez early en route to a 5-3 victory at Camden Yards.

Hernandez (1-7) gave up five runs and eight hits over five innings as the Mariners opened the final road series of the year on a sour note.

The Mariners managed only four hits, although two of them — a homer and a double — came off the bat of rookie sensation Kyle Lewis.

Lewis staked the Mariners to an early lead when he drilled a first inning, two-run shot into the left field seats for his sixth homer in 10 big-league games.
