DETROIT -- Adorned with customary yellow T-shirts and "K" placards, Felix Hernandez's King's Court cheering section at Comerica Park on Saturday was far smaller than at a usual Safeco Field start.
Against a backdrop of blue and orange Tigers paraphernalia, though, the quartet of Felix followers was certainly more conspicuous than it would have been in Seattle.
These four Mariners fans, two of them Seattle transplants to Detroit, were not strangers to road environments. They'd been to a handful of Major League ballparks around the country, but Saturday night's matchup between Hernandez and the newly acquired David Price was special.
"It doesn't get any better than these two," said one of Felix's fans, Brandon Honnoll, from San Jose.
