Official game notes, minor league report and lineup

Mariners (30-42)

  • Ichiro RF
  • Franklin Gutierrez CF
  • Kyle Seager 3B
  • Jesus Montero C
  • Michael Saunders LF
  • Justin Smoak 1B
  • Dustin Ackley 2B
  • Brendan Ryan SS
  • Felix Hernandez RHP

Decent looking lineup tonight against right-hander Jason Marquis of the Padres. There should be no real complaints about it, given the limitations that Eric Wedge is working under - having to play Ichiro, not having a DH.

Quick reminder that Danny Hultzen will be pitching his first game for the Tacoma Rainiers tonight in Colorado Springs. Game time is 5:05 local time. You can listen to the voice of the Rainiers - and hopefully the future voice of the Mariners - Mike Curto at or just click here.

Curto has this blog post that stalks/outlines Hultzen's daunting travel day he faces before his start.  Also here's T.J. Cotterill's Rainiers story that also talks about Hultzen's debut.
