With Felix Hernandez pitching a 1-0 gem against the Red Sox Thursday, the Mariners pitching staff has now limited opponents to two runs or less in each of the last six games, the longest streak in the major leagues this season and tied for the second-longest streak in franchise history.
The Mariners Friday will task RHP Hector Noesi with matching the record, set May 16-22, 2011. Noesi will oppose Aaron Cook, who will make his second start in a row in place of the injured Clay Buchholz. Only three current Mariners have ever taken hacks against Cook. A closer look:
MARINERS: RHP Hector Noesi (2-9, 5.50 ERA, 1.30 WHIP)
The 25-year-old Noesi, in his second major league season and first with the Mariners, is making his 16th start and first against the Red Sox. Noesi, who has largely struggled for the past month and a half, is coming off a good, although losing, outing against San Diego June 24, when the Padres won 2-0.
A native of Esperanza, Valverde, Dominican Republic, the 6-3, 200-pound Noesi was signed as an amateur free agent by the New York Yankees in 2004.
Noesi made his major league debut May 18, 2011 for the Yankees against the Baltimore Orioles. The fifth Yankees reliever, he collected the win by working four innings, allowing four hits, no runs and fanning four.
Noesi became a Mariner Jan. 23 when he was traded by the Yankees, along with Jesus Montero, to Seattle for Jose Campos (minors) and Michael Pineda, an All-Star starter.
Noesi, who appeared in 30 games for the Yankees, making two starts, has a career record of 4-11, 5.10 ERA.
- LAST START: June 24 at San Diego, lost 2-0; allowed two earned runs on seven hits in 6.0 innings; struck out six, walked three and threw 105 pitches, 63 strikes.

- LOVES/HATES TO FACE: Noesi has a limited record against Boston. Current members of the Red Sox are 4-for-17, .235 BA against Noesi and only Jacoby Ellsbury, 2-for-4, has more than one hit off Noesi.

RED SOX: RHP Aaron Cook (1-1, 9.39 ERA, 1.95 WHIP)
The 33-year-old Cook, in his 11th major league season and first with the Red Sox, is making his third start and first against the Mariners. Cook, who has had half a dozen starts this season at AAA Pawtucket, is coming off a 9-4 victory over the Atlanta Braves June 24.
A native of Fort Campbell, KY., the 6-3, 215-pound Cook played prep baseball at Hamilton (OH.) High School. The Colorado Rockies selected him in the second round of the 1997 amateur draft.
Cook pitched in the Colorado system until Aug. 10, 2002, when he made his major league debut in a 15-1 loss to the Chicago Cubs. Cook allowed one run on two hits in two innings and did not factor in the decision.
Cook went 2-1 in 2002 and pitched for the Rockies through the 2011 season. He had his best year in 2008 when he won 16 games and made the National League All-Star team (pitched three scoreless innings). Cook went 72-68, 4.53 in his 10 years with the Rockies.
Following the 2011 season, the Rockies granted Cook free agency and he signed with the Red Sox Jan. 9 on a minor league deal. Recovering from shoulder and knee injuries that plagued him in 2010 and 2011, Cook began the 2012 season with Pawtucket.
- 2012: He went 3-0 in six stars at Pawtucket, went on the disabled list and was activated June 24 to replace teammate Clay Buchholz, who was scratched from the rotation due to illness and later placed on the 15-day disabled list.
- LAST START: June 24, defeated the Atlanta Braves 9-4, pitching 5.0 innings without a strikeout or a walk; allowed two earned runs on three hits.
- LAST VS. MARINERS: Never pitched.
- CAREER VS. MARINERS: No record.
- AT SAFECO FIELD: No record.
- LOVES/HATES TO FACE: Cook faced just three members of the current Mariners: Brendan Ryan (1-for-3, .333 BA), Miguel Olivo (1-for-5, .250 BA), Chone Figgins (0-for-7, .000 BA).
Mariners 1, Red Sox 0
AT SEATTLE (June 28): Felix Hernandez (6-5) matched his career high with 13 strikeouts in a complete-game five-hitter and John Jaso made sure Hernandez got the win by lacing a walk-off single in the ninth inning for a 1-0 win. Jason’s hit scored Casper Wells, who had doubled. “Tonight is as good as I’ve ever seen him,” Seattle manager Eric Wedge said. “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.” Said Boston 2B Dustin Pedroia: “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.”

2012 RECORDS / MILESTONES
- April 24: Catcher Miguel Olivo matched the franchise record when he was charged with three passed balls in a 7-4 win at Detroit. Jerry Narron let three balls get by him Oct. 4, 1980, and Jeff Clement did likewise Aug. 10, 2008 (Clement was catching knuckleballer R.A. Dickey).
- April 27: Michael Saunders joined Donnie Scott (April 29, 1985) and Jimmy Presley (April 8, 1986) as the only Mariners to hit two home runs in a game in the ninth inning or later (solo homer in the 9th, grand slam in the 10th).
- April 30: When both Miguel Olivo and Jesus Montero homered, it marked the first time in franchise history that two players had homered in the same game as a catcher.
- May 2: Ichiro set a club record for most putouts by a right fielder in a nine-inning game, registering 10 in a 5-4 loss at Tampa.
- May 3: The Mariners featured a lineup at Tampa Bay that included seven left- handed hitters and two switch-hitters. It marked only the third time in club history that the Mariners used an all left-sided lineup. Others: Aug. 13, 1983 at California and Aug. 9, 1983 at Oakland.
- May 5: Combined one-hitter by Felix Hernandez and Steve Delabar vs. Minnesota was the 13th in Mariners history. Ten have been thrown by one pitcher, three combined. Most recent combined: Michael Pineda, Jeff Gray and Brandon League vs. Tampa, July 30, 2011. Most recent by one pitcher: Jarrod Washburn, July 6, 2009.
- May 9: When John Jaso batted leadoff against Detroit, it marked the first time since 1978 that a catcher had hit first for the Marines (Bob Stinson). Oddly, lefty Jaso led off against Tiger lefty Drew Smyly.
- May 8: Kevin Millwood’s 2-0 shutout marked his first in nearly nine years. He did not surrender his first hit until there were two outs in the sixth. Millwood’s gem marked only the fourth time in 1,440 games at Coors Field that an opposing pitcher held the Rockies to two hits or less while shutting them out. Millwood’s complete game also was the first by a Mariner in 2012.
- May 27: The pinch-hit grand slam allowed by Felix Hernandez to Alberto Callaspo marked just the sixth against the Mariners in 35 years, and the first since May 6, 1988 when Pat Sheridan of Detroit hit one off Mike Jackson.
- May 30: Mariners defeated Texas 21-8, just the third time in franchise history they have scored 20 or more runs in a game. The Mariners, with 20 hits, became the first team since 1880 to score 20 runs in a game in the same season it also go perfect-oed.
- June 8: Kevin Millwood and five relievers collaborated for the 10th combined no-hitter in major league history in a 1-0 win over the Dodgers at Safeco Field. Millwood (6.0), Charlie Furbush (0.2), Stephen Pryor (0.1), Lucas Luetge (0.1), Brandon League (0.2), and Tom Wilhelmsen (1.0) tied the MLB record for most pitchers used in a no-hitter (Houston vs. the Yankees June 11, 2003). It marked the third no-hitter in Mariners history.
- June 18: Aaron Hill of Arizona hit for the cycle in the Diamondbacks’ 7-1 win over the Mariners. Hill singled in the first (Hector Noesi), tripled in the third (Noesi), doubled in the fifth (Noesi) and homered in the seventh (Shawn Kelley).
- June 19: Ichiro reached 2,500 hits (first-inning single) in the fourth-fewest games in major league history during a 12-9 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks. His 2,500th hit came in his 1,817th game. Al Simmons had 2,500 hits in 1,784 games, Ty Cobb in 1,790 and George Sisler in 1,808 . . . When Kyle Seager and Brendan Ryan both hit three-run homers in the fifth inning, it marked the first time since July 30, 2003 vs. Detroit that the Mariners had a pair of three-run bombs in the same inning. In that July 30, 2003 game, John Olerud hit a three-run homer and Randy Winn a grand slam in the first inning.
