Hernandez rebounds, outduels Bumgarner as M's beat Giants

Jun 18, 2015 - 6:14 AM Seattle, WA ( - Felix Hernandez rebounded from an abysmal outing to outduel Madison Bumgarner in the Seattle Mariners' 2-0 win over the San Francisco Giants on Wednesday night.

Hernandez (10-3) scattered four hits, all singles, walked two and struck out five over eight strong innings. He surrendered eight runs while matching a personal worst by only recording one out in Friday's 10-0 loss at Houston.

Charlie Furbush got the first two outs in the ninth and Carson Smith struck out Matt Duffy to earn his third save.

Austin Jackson and Robinson Cano each knocked in a run in the sixth as the Mariners won for just the second time in their last 10 home games.

Bumgarner (7-4) allowed two runs on four hits and struck out nine in eight innings.

"I felt as good as I felt all year," Bumgarner said. "My command was good, body felt great and delivery felt great."

He retired the first 13 batters he faced before the official scorer credited Mark Trumbo with an infield single in the fifth. It was a questionable call because Trumbo's grounder to Brandon Crawford took a bad hop on the infield and went off the shortstop's chest.

It remained Seattle's lone hit until Mike Zunino put an end to the controversy with a solid single to left field with one out in the sixth.

Jackson followed with a triple to the gap in right-center field and scored on Cano's double to right. Bumgarner then intentionally walked Nelson Cruz, the lone free pass issued by the left-hander, but he got Kyle Seager to fly out and picked Cano off second to end the inning.

The Giants had two men aboard in the seventh, but Hernandez induced a 5-3 groundout from Justin Maxwell to escape the jam.

"We found a way to win," Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said. "We grinded it out."

Game Notes

Seattle improved to 10-3 all-time against San Francisco at Safeco Field ... Cruz was 0-for-2, falling to 0 for his last 14 ... Duffy had two of the Giants' four hits.
