After being five-hit by Jered Weaver last night, the Seattle Mariners are out for early batting practice - but it's their pitchers taking early hacks today, not position players.
After a round of bunting drills, the pitchers get to swing away, and guys are swinging from their heels trying to put some distance on a baseball. At 3:30 p.m., even pitchers look good.
As for the lineup tonight, Eric Wedge is trying something new. The man who was almost sent to Tacoma two weeks ago, Carlos Peguero, will bat cleanup tonight and be the Mariners designated hitter.
Here's your lineup for the series finale vs. Angels tonight:
