Seattle Mariners: Hisashi Iwakuma named A.L. Player of the Week

Congratulations to Mariners starting pitcher Hisashi Iwakuma for his 1st career Player of the Week award. It has been a rough year for 34-year-old Iwakuma, he had been injured for much of the year; but, last week he produced a no-hitter that punished the Orioles into submission. The 6’3 right-hander is 4-2 with a 3.86 ERA (31 ER, 72.1 IP) with 58 strikeouts in 11 starts this season...

Hisashi Iwakuma’s No-Hitter High Point Of Seattle Mariners’ Season

There’s just something about the Seattle Mariners that seems to attract stellar pitching like nobody’s business (while actively eschewing solid hitting, it seems). In his eighth start since returning from the DL (his 11th for the year), starter Hisashi Iwakuma threw a no-hitter against the Baltimore Orioles yesterday. Iwakuma, 34 and an impending free agent, has seen his stock...

Inside Hisashi Iwakuma’s No-Hitter

Say what you will about the Mariners over the years, but at least they’ve thrown the American League’s last three no-hitters. And, say what you will about the significance of a no-hitter, but they’re undeniably exciting and cool, sometimes little oases of elation in a year that’s otherwise lost. You don’t need to overthink it. People like no-hitters. People like them because...

Seattle Mariners No-Hitter, Why We Love Baseball

It’s been a disappointing season for Seattle Mariners fans.  Poor pitching, low production, and frustrating losses dashed preseason hopes of a playoff run.  All in all, there hasn’t been a lot to cheer for in the Mariners camp, until yesterday afternoon. On Wednesday, Hisashi Iwakuma threw a no-hitter and reminded us all why we love baseball.  Baseball is not the flashiest...

Seattle Mariners: Iwakuma hurls no-hitter

In the midst of a disappointing season, the Seattle Mariners have actually had a few really nice stories. Nelson Cruz is having a monster year, Franklin Gutierrez has not only finally returned to action but has produced in a big way for the team, and now Hisashi Iwakuma adds his own story to the season. After a terrible final stretch in the 2014 season, as well as a bad start to...

Hisashi Iwakuma threw the fifth no-hitter in franchise history on Wednesday, leading the Mariners to a 3-0 victory over the Orioles in a matinee at Safeco Field. Felix Hernandez was the last Mariner to hold an opponent hitless...

Seattle Mariners: Vintage Felix, Iwakuma

Mariners fans have to hope that Iwakuma’s outing on Saturday is a sign of things to come In 2012, Hisashi Iwakuma began his Seattle Mariners career as a reliever, and he struggled pretty badly, sporting a 4.75 ERA and 1.418 WHIP in 14 games. Then, he returned to his familiar role as a starter, and the rest has been history. For the most part, he’s been the Mariners second-best...

Haven’t You Figured It Out Yet?  Iwakuma Is A Dominant Pitcher

8 Innings Each In First 3 Starts Says It All It’s simply amazing to me just how little people take notice of a pitcher like the Seattle Mariners‘ Hisashi Iwakuma.  It’s almost like if you can’t throw it 95 MPH and strike out at least a dozen per game, you can’t be considered a dominated pitcher. I’ve been accused of being “old school” when it comes to my baseball...

Seattle Mariners: Starting rotation picture muddled

Despite the chill still hanging in the air and winter not taking a hint on when to leave, Opening Day is now a mere four days way.  For the Seattle Mariners, the season will open on the road as they take on the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.  We all know on Monday, March 31st, that Felix Hernandez will once again take the hill as the Opening Day starter for Seattle.  What happens...
