Adrian Beltre’s sore left index finger is still bothering him. It hurts to grip a bat. So he wasn’t taking out extra batting practice. Riggleman also gave Jose Lopez the day off … But Riggleman also said it’s a matter of keeping guys on the bench from getting rusty from sitting too long.

This will be the 29th time that Vidro has started a game at clean-up in his career, according the Mariners media relations. He’s got 27 hits in 90 at-bats.

So here it is…


Ichiro RF

Bloomquist 2B

Ibanez LF

Vidro 1B

Reed CF

Betancourt SS

Clement C

Cairo 3B


Silva P — Silva probably looked at the lineup and said, “Nice joke guys, where’s the real lineup?”


Gregor Blanco CF

Omar Infante SS

Kelly Johnson 2B

Mark Teixeira 1B

Brian McCann C

Greg Norton RF

Ruben Gotay 3B

Brandon Jones LF


Tim Hudson P
