King Felix makes spring debut in Mariners' 5-4 loss to Rockies

Felix Hernandez pitched out of early trouble, allowing four hits over 2 2-3 innings in the Mariners' 5-4 loss to Colorado on Sunday.

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Although shaky at times, Felix Hernandez was sharp when he needed to be in his spring debut.

The Seattle ace pitched out of early trouble, allowing four hits over 2 2-3 innings in the Mariners' 5-4 loss to Colorado on Sunday.

Not to be outdone, Rockies ace Ubaldo Jimenez turned in a stellar showing, allowing one hit in four innings.

This spring, the Mariners have been slowly bringing along Hernandez, who won 19 games last year and finished second in AL Cy Young Award voting.

Before Sunday, Hernandez had thrown just two simulated games. He was on a 50-pitch count against Colorado, but went three over as manager Don Wakamatsu allowed him to throw into the third.

Todd Helton was 0 for 2 with a walk in his first game this spring.
