Ken Griffey Jr. back in lineup for Mariners

And none too soon, as the Mariners need some offense. A look above at the newly-remodeled Kauffman Stadium, where those traditional fountains in the outfield now have tons of advertising all around them. Anyhow, some lineup switches going on against right handed pitcher Sidney Ponson. Russell Branyan is again the cleanup guy, as he was against the lefty yesterday. Adrian Beltre hits fifth, while Jose Lopez is third. That’s right, Lopez is third. Griffey is down to No. 6 in the order.
