The King of Opening Day
Opening Day is just 18 days away when the Mariners host the Angels April 6 at Safeco Field (1:10 pm). King Felix will be making his 8th career Opening Day start, and 7th consecutive.
Seattle’s eight consecutive Opening Day wins represent the longest streak in the Majors since the Reds won nine in a row from 1983-91. Not coincidentally, Felix Hernandez has started seven of those games and is 5-0 with a 1.52 ERA. King Felix will try to extend that streak against the Angels on April 6 at Safeco Field.
