A lineup and a roster move for Mariners

The Seattle Mariners are on a seven-game losing streak during which they’ve scored 14 runs, and manager Eric Wedge continues pulliing new lineups out of his roster.

But first, that roster changed today: the Mariners recalled right-handed pitcher Shawn Kelley and sent right-handed rookie Erasmo Ramirez to Tacoma, where he's likely to slip into the rotation. Yes, he will be back.

          This one may please more fans than most – he’s got John Jaso, Mike Carp, Kyle Seager and Jose Montero in it, and Chone Figgins sitting.

          Best of all, he has Felix Hernandez starting.

          That should mean a nice crowd at Safeco Field, and a better-than-average chance to win if the Mariners can, say, score.

          Here’s today’s lineup:

          Dustin Ackley 2B          Brendan Ryan SS          Ichiro RF          Jesus Montero C          Kyle Seager  3B          John Jaso  DH          Justin Smoak  1B          Mike Carp LF          Michael Saunders  CF          Felix Hernandez RHP
