Sticking with a lineup that's a winner

Seattle Mainers manager Eric Wedge has taken heat for most everything so far this season, but he knows when he's found a good thing - only if for a few days.

The lineup that won the last two games is essentially the same - catchers Jesus Montero and John Jaso flip-flop from catcher to DH. Only the competition has changed, which might not favor Seattle.

The Detroit Tigers sent former Mariner Doug Fister to the mound for the second time all season, fresh off the disabled list and throwing a hard sinker and assorted off-speed pitches. Since the deal that sent him to the Tigers, Fister has been sensational.

Can a lineup that twice beat the Twins handle Fister and the Tigers? Weigh in now.
