The Seattle Mariners are facing a left-hander in today's trip finale, and manager Eric Wedge has come up with a new-look lineup that includes his seventh leadoff hitter of the season - Casper Wells.
No, Wells has never batted first in his career with Seattle, but did so twice as a Detroit Tiger last season.
The Mariners have also loaded up as many right-handed hitters as they could: Wells, Jesus Montero, Miguel Olivo, Brendan Ryan - and switch-hitters Chone Figgins and Justin Smoak.
Blake Beavan returns to the mound, trying to add a win to the team's 4-2 record on this swing through Kansas City (3-1) and Tampa Bay (1-1). Here's the lineup:
