Russell Branyan (back) will miss his fourth consecutive start, and center fielder Franklin Gutierrez has stomach issues and is on the bench, so manager Daren Brown scrambled to come up with an all-new lineup for the Seattle Mariners.
In this one, Justin Smoak bats cleanup and, behind him, outfielder Ryan Langerhans - batting .188 with four RBI.
"I don't look at what I don't have, I look at what I do have and consider it an opportunity for a couple of guys," Brown said.
Jose Lopez will serve as the designated hitter, Matt Tuiasosopo will play third and Michael Saunders center field.
It's Luke French vs. lefty Marc Rzepcynski:
- Ichiro Suzuki, RF
- Chone Figgins, 2B
- Jose Lopez, DH
- Justin Smoak, 1B
- Ryan Langerhans, LF
- Adam Moore, C
- Michael Saunders, CF
- Matt Tuiasosopo, 3B
- Josh Wilson, SS
- Luke French, P
