Wilson, Figgins make rare appearances in M’s lineup

Manager Eric Wedge put Franklin Gutierrez in the No. 2 hole Sunday for the first time this year as Brendan Ryan gets a day off. That means that Jack Wilson gets a rare start at shortstop.
Chone Figgins gets the start at third base as rookie Kyle Seager, just 2-for-18 in his first six games (including a single on Saturday), sits against Texas lefty starter Matt Harrison. Miguel Olivo will be the DH, with Josh Bard starting behind the plate.
Here is their lineup:
Mariners (43-51)
——————————-
51 Ichiro Suzuki (L) RF
21 Franklin Gutierrez CF
13 Dustin Ackley (L) 2B
30 Miguel Olivo DH
17 Justin Smoak (S) 1B
56 Greg Halman LF
3 Josh Bard (S) C
9 Chone Figgins (S) 3B
