Felix Hits the Century Mark

100 Wins_Felix

Last night Felix Hernandez recorded his 100th career victory in the Mariners 7-1 win over the Houston Astros . It seems like yesterday he made his Major League debut as a 19-year-old on an August day in Detroit vs. the Tigers in 2005. 100 wins later, Felix becomes just the third pitcher in franchise history to record 100 wins as a Mariners player, joining Jamie Moyer (145) and Randy Johnson (130).

According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Felix became the 6th-youngest pitcher to record his 100th victory among players who began their career since divisional play began in 1969. Only five reached 100 wins at a younger age than Hernandez (27 years, 14 days old): Dwight Gooden (24 years, 215 days), Bert Blyleven (25 years, 76 days), Fernando Valenzuela (26 years, 162 days), Don Gullett (26 years, 199 days) and Vida Blue (26 years, 361 days).

Felix Hernandez recorded his 100th career win with 6.0 scoreless innings Monday night at Houston.
