Seattle Mariners ace Felix Hernandez added another accolade to his illustrious career Monday by becoming the all-time winningest pitcher in franchise history.

Hernandez passed Jamie Moyer with his 146th win, according to MLB Stat of the Day. Moyer took the time congratulate Hernandez on his accomplishment, courtesy of the team’s Twitter account:

The 30-year-old allowed only two runs on four hits to lead the Mariners to a 5-2 win over the Tampa Bay Rays. He is now 3-2 on the season with a 2.27 ERA.

Sports Radio 950 KJR’s Dave Softy Mahler Show added context to Hernandez’s place in Seattle’s history:

Hernandez has been one of the game’s best pitchers for years, so it was only a matter of time before he became the most decorated hurler ever for the Mariners.

Seattle, sitting at 19-13, is atop the American League West and appears to have the lineup and pitching prowess to make a run at a playoff berth. If Robinson Cano and Nelson Cruz continue to provide the offense, the 2010 AL Cy Young winner could find himself pitching in the postseason for the first time in his career.
