Mariners lineup Friday vs. Colorado: Montero sits again

Here is tonight’s lineup for the interleague game against the Rockies:
Mariners (16-24)
———————————
13 Dustin Ackley (L) 2B
55 Michael Saunders (L) CF
51 Ichiro Suzuki (L) RF
15 Kyle Seager (L) 3B
17 Justin Smoak (S) 1B
27 John Jaso (L) C
20 Mike Carp (L) LF
26 Brendan Ryan SS
25 Kevin Millwood RHP
Obviously, the Mariners don’t have a designated hitter, and manager Eric Wedge elected to keep struggling Jesus Montero on the bench for the second straight day rather than put him behind the plate. Montero’s average is down to .244
The Rockies’ starter tonight is right-hander Alex White, who was college teammates with Kyle Seager and Dustin Ackley at the University of North Carolina. They had a 159-48 record together in three years, with three trips to the College World Series.
