Today's Mariners line-ups for the B game and the Cactus League game

The Mariners will play two games today, well actually about one and three-quarter games. Because of the cancelled game yesterday, Seattle has scheduled a "B" game against the San Diego Padres at 10 a.m. in Peoria Stadium. It will be a 7 inning game with Joe Saunders getting the start on the mound.

Starting Lineup:

  • 3          Robert Andino            SS
  • 77        Brad Miller (L)            3B
  • 12        JasonBay        RF
  • 33        Casper Wells   CF
  • 10        Eric Thames (L)LF     
  • 63        Jesus Montero C
  • 27        Ronny Paulino            DH
  • 36        Vinnie Catricala          1B
  • 1          Carlos Triunfel            2B
  • 23        Joe Saunders   LHP
Extra Pitchers:
  • 71       Logan Bawcom                            RHP
  • 39       Danny Farquhar                            RHP

And later today, the Mariners will play their regularly scheduled Cactus League game vs. the Los Angeles Dodgers. Jon Garland will get the start and likely pitch three innings.

3-9 -- lineup vs. the Dodgers

Interesting to see Dustin Ackley batting seventh in this lineup. But after the game where he had a couple of hits, he's still hasn't looked completely comfortable at the plate. It looks as though he's still trying to find the timing with his new swing changes. With the exception of Jesus Sucre catching, this could be an actual line-up for the Mariners this season.
