Rays' Hernandez Gets First Win Since '11
But considering his last big-league victory came 579 days ago ? Sept. 20, 2011 ? when he was pitching under the name Fausto Carmona, the 32-year-old veteran was all smiles after his six-inning start.
"It feels very, very, very great," Hernandez said.
Hernandez's winless streak spanned only seven starts. He made just three last season for the Indians (0-3, 7.53 ERA) due to visa issues stemming from a false identity arrest in the Dominican Republic.
