Hernandez stars in win over Brewers



TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) -- Felix Hernandez limited Milwaukee to one hit in six scoreless innings in his second-to-last outing before Seattle leaves for Japan, helping the Mariners beat the Brewers 6-1 in a split-squad game Friday.

   Hernandez threw 80 pitches, 50 for strikes. He struck out six and walked one.

   Hernandez will likely make his final spring start Wednesday before the team departs for Tokyo for two exhibition games and its season opener March 28 against Oakland.

   Alex Liddi hit a two-run home run, and Dustin Ackley had three doubles for Seattle.

   Milwaukee starter Marco Estrada allowed three runs and five hits in three innings. He struck out two and walked two. The Brewers played without any of their regular position players.
