Two Saturday lineups, day-night double-header

The Seattle Mariners continue to pile up innings for their pitchers and games for their team, playing two more games today - one of them a 6 p.m. (PST) start.

In their day game in Peoria with the Los Angeles Dodgers, pitcher Hisashi Iwakuma will try to get beyond the first inning - something he couldn't do in either an intra-squaad game or his Cactus League debut. This could be a key appearance - he has to show something to calm the concern.

The night game will throw those Mariners babies - Erasmo Ramirerz, Dan Hultzen, Taijuan Walker and James Paxton - at the Diamondbacks. All in all, an intriguing double-header.
