• Since the start of the 2010 season, Felix Hernandez has 25 starts of at least eight innings and nine-or-more strikeouts, as he accomplished again Friday. Only two other pitchers in baseball have more than 15 such starts in that span: Cliff Lee with 21 and Justin Verlander with 15.

• Third baseman D.J. Peterson, last year's first-round Draft pick, went 2-for-5 with two home runs -- including a grand slam -- in Class A High Desert's 12-8 loss at Bakersfield on Friday. Peterson is hitting .285 with seven home runs and 35 RBIs.
