Here are a bunch of quotes of what was said about the 13-strikeout performance by Felix Hernandez last night:

“Tonight is as good as I’ve ever seen him. Against a lot of veteran hitters, a lot of good hitters, and a 0-0 ballgame like that, you couldn’t ask for anything more.”

- Mariners Manager Eric Wedge

“I wanted to do it so bad for him. He pitched his tail end off. We came through with some big plays for him, but that was an unbelievable performance to watch.”

- Mariners left fielder Casper Wells

“That’s the best we’ve seen. He was unreal. His stuff was moving all over the place. He kept the ball out of the middle of the plate. He was pretty special tonight.”

- Boston second baseman Dustin Pedroia

“He was King Felix. He was as good as I’ve ever seen.”

- Boston right fielder Cody Ross

“He pitched extremely, extremely well. Aggressive in the strike zone, consistent with all three pitches, throwing them anytime in the count. In and out, up and down, it was some pretty good stuff. It’s what you teach.”

- Bobby Valentine, Boston manager

“That wasn’t human, man.”

- Boston designated hitter David Ortiz

“He’s one of the best pitchers in the American League. But I didn’t think about him. I thought I would just pitch my game. I just tried to make my pitches. King Felix threw very good tonight. That’s the game, man.”

- Boston starting pitcher Franklin Morales

“This year, this is the best game that I’ve thrown. I was throwing a lot of strikes and all the pitches were working.”

- Felix Hernandez

“I felt pretty good today. All my pitches were working, I was down in the zone, I was throwing strikes. That’s me right there. That was the best game I’ve thrown this year.”

- Felix Hernandez

“I’m throwing more strikes. I was getting ahead of hitters and mixing in breaking balls. The fastball has more life right now, so I feel pretty good.”

- Felix Hernandez

“Unbelievable. That’s my best game this year, and the guys played great defense behind me. We needed that win. We needed it.”

- Felix Hernandez

“I felt great, I had could life on my fastball, my breaking pitch was sharp, my changeup was good. All my pitches were working.”

-Felix Hernandez
