Another night off for Franklin Gutierrez and Jesus Montero in Mariners lineup

Franklin Gutierrez had the night off last night, only coming in late as a defensive replacement. Tonight, he’s still not out there as the Mariners go with the same outfield combo as last night against tough right-hander Alexi Ogando.

Jesus Montero is also out for a second night, with Kelly Shoppach behind the plate for veteran pitcher Joe Saunders. You’d have to think that’s to help Saunders as much as the offense, going up against a tough Rangers lineup. Shoppach caught a pretty good game last night, so Eric Wedge is going with the hot hand.
