Brendan Ryan’s return to shortstop after a day off and the re-insertion of veteran Miguel Olivo at catcher are about the only changes the Seattle Mariners made today as they face the Cleveland Indians and – oh, yes – go for their sixth consecutive win.

Their hottest hitter is Dustin Ackley, with five hits and a walk in the past two games, but most everyone in the lineup has done damage during the winning streak. If there’s one starting pitcher who has every reason to feel left out in the win column this season, it’s Kevin Millwood, who starts tonight with a 4-10 record.

No, life’s not fair. Here’s tonight’s lineup:

Dustin Ackley     2B
Michael Saunders   CF
Kyle Seager       3B
John Jaso          DH
Justin Smoak       1B
Eric Thames        RF
Miguel Olivo            C
Trayvon Robinson    LF
Brendan Ryan           SS
Kevin Millwood         RHP
