Indians Vs. Mariners Final Score: Cleveland Falls To Seattle, 5-1

The Cleveland Indians got the solid start that they were looking for from Roberto Hernandez, but it was not enough to get past Felix Hernandez and the Seattle Mariners. Roberto Hernandez exited the game in the seventh inning having given up two runs, but with two more runners on base. Those runners were inherited by Esmil Rogers, who promptly allowed a three-run homer to Jesus Montero to put Seattle up 5-1.

Felix, meanwhile, was his typical brilliant self. He allowed one run on seven hits through 7.2 innings, bucking the historic trend that has seen pitchers struggle in their first games after pitching a perfect game. Casey Kotchman got the lone RBI off Hernandez, scoring Carlos Santana in the seventh on a single that briefly tied the game at one.

The teams will finish up their series on Wednesday at 3:40 p.m. ET.
