It's getaway day in Detroit, and the Mariners are throwing the most valuable young arm in baseball up there today, the 19-year-old right appendage of "King" Felix Hernandez. Sean Douglass (3-1, 3.86), called "King" by no one except perhaps his lovely wife in situations we won't discuss here, takes the hill for the Detroiters, and tries to recover from his first shellacking of the year.
