Jack Wilson makes the first start of his Seattle career tonight, batting seventh as manager Don Wakamatsu gets a good look at him before making any long-tem lineup decisions.

The Mariners remain without their top power hitter, Russell Branyan, who has been laid low by back strain. Branyan took batting practice today, will likely play tomorrow. Otherwise, against lefty Derek Holland, the Mariners won’t be starting Ken Griffey Jr. or Kenji Johjima.

Here’s your Seattle starting lineup:

Ichiro RF

Franklin Gutierez CF

Jose Lopez 2B

Mike Sweeney DH

Chris Shelton 1B

Jack Hannahan 3B

Jack Wilson SS

Rob Johnson C

Michael Saunders LF

Garrett Olson LHP
