Felix Hernandez got out-pitched by a backup catcher

Tonight wasn't the best night of Felix Hernandez's career.

He left the game after recording just one out, and giving up five hits, two walks, two home runs and eight earned runs. You know who didn't have that bad of a night on the mound? Mariners backup catcher Jesus Sucre.

In his first pitching appearance in Major League Baseball, Jesus Sucre got three outs on only seven pitches. So it looks like we have a new favorite for Cy Young.
