Twins-Mariners Preview

(AP) -- Felix Hernandez has been nearly unhittable in his first two home starts, and the team he's about to face hasn't won a road series since early August.

The Seattle Mariners' ace will try to keep a promising start at Safeco Field going Friday night against the Minnesota Twins, who need their own No. 1 starter to get back to 2014 form.

Hernandez (2-0, 2.37 ERA), who has made two home starts sandwiching one in Oakland, has allowed two runs and four hits in 14 innings at home. Dating to his last 2014 start at Safeco, he's 3-0 with a 0.93 ERA and .082 opponent batting average while striking out 29 in 19 1-3 innings. The right-hander is 10-2 in his last 15 home starts dating to May 23, and among pitchers with at least 10 home starts in that time, he leads the majors with a 1.56 ERA and 0.77 WHIP.
