Felix Hernandez Looking to add to his already-impressive Cy Young resume, the Mariners' Felix Hernandez has a no-hitter through six innings against the Rangers.

Hernandez has allowed just one baserunner, walking a batter while striking out seven. He's thrown just 65 pitches.

The Rangers haven't really gotten anything close to a hit, either.

Seattle leads 2-0 in the middle of the sixth. The Mariners have managed six hits off Texas starter C.J. Wilson.

UPDATE: Michael Young is the eighth strikeout victim, leading off the seventh. David Murphy taps back to the pitcher for the second out. Vladimir Guerrero then lined one to second. Hernandez has thrown 72 pitches.

UPDATE: Nelson Cruz broke up the no-hitter and shutout on Hernandez's second pitch of the inning with a solo homer to center.

UPDATE: The one run would be all the Rangers would get off of Hernandez. Texas added two more hits in the eighth, but nothing else and David Aardsma picked up the save, while Hernandez moved to 12-11 on the season.
