Vargas goes for his 10th win

Left-hander Jason Vargas attempts to join the 10-win club tonight and, backing him up, the Seattle Mariners hope desigtnated hitter Carlos Peguero can run into another fastball.

Peguero's long home run last night produced two of the three runs Seattle produced in a 14-inning loss, so Eric Wedge has him back in the game. John Jaso will catch, Michael Saunders returns to center field and Munenori Kawasaki starts at shortstop.

Here's tonight's lineup:
