Seattle, WA (Sports Network) - Batman had the Joker. Superman had General Zod. Felix Hernandez's nemesis this season has been the Texas Rangers. Leonys Martin hit a homer and drove in four runs as the Rangers pounded the Seattle right-hander again and swept this three-game set at Safeco Field with Wednesday's 12-4 thrashing. Adrian Beltre and Elvis Andrus each had three hits and two RBI for the AL West-leading Rangers, who posted their seventh win in nine games. Martin Perez (8-3) won his career-best fifth straight start after tossing six innings. He held the Mariners without a hit through three frames and allowed just solo homers by Dustin Ackley and Kyle Seager. Hernandez (12-8) was far from effective in his brief outing. He was roughed up for nine runs -- eight earned -- on 11 hits in three-plus innings. The 2010 AL Cy Young Award winner is now 0-4 with a 7.57 ERA in five meetings with Texas this year. He has also dropped three consecutive starts and four of five overall. Ackley added an RBI double in the ninth for the Mariners, who were winless during their six-game homestand.
