Between April 22-May 8, Felix Hernandez won a season-high four consecutive starts. In the four, he pitched at least 6.0 innings and did allow more than one earned run in any of them. In fact, in two, he allowed no earned runs. It didn't get a lot of attention at the time, but Hernandez's work in those four starts was amazing in terms of Mariners history.
