Mariners lineup: A few surprises

Ken Griffey Jr. is starting today — at cleanup again — against a lefty, Barry Zito. Don Wakamatsu had a couple of reasons — one, they’re facing two lefties the first two day in Oakland, so he didn’t want Junior sitting three days in a row; and two, Zito’s recent numbers against lefties aren’t impressive. I still wish he had started Griffey against Randy Johnson, just for the theater.
Also, Yuniesky Betancourt moves up to No. 2 in the order, another step in Wakamatsu’s never-ending attempts to get him going.
Here’s the lineup:
Ichiro RF
Yuniesky Betancourt SS
Adrian Beltre 3B
Ken Griffey Jr. DH
Russ Branyan 1B
Jose Lopez 2B
Wladimir Balentien LF
Rob Johnson C
Franklin Gutierrez CF
Felix Hernandez P
And for the Giants:
Aaron Rowand CF
Edgar Renteria SS
Randy Winn RF
Bengie Molina DH
Fred Lewis LF
Travis Ishikawa 1B
Juan Uribe 3B
Emmanuel Burris 2B
Eli Whiteside C
Barry Zito LHP
