Blanco gets start behind plate tonight for Mariners
Note: Stephen Pryor, coming back from a lat tear early in the season, is throwing right now at Safeco Field (about 3 p.m.), with Franklin Gutierrez, Michael Morse and Dustin Ackley taking swings against him.
Here is the lineup for the third game of this four-game series with the Red Sox, as Felix takes the mound. No, not that Felix. The Red Sox are starting Felix Doubront, who is 5-3 with a 4.11 ERA. The Mariners counter with Aaron Harang, coming off a strong effort in Cincinnati against the Reds (six innings, two runs).
Henry Blanco makes a rare start behind the plate as Mike Zunino gets a rest. Blanco is hitting .158 (3-for-19) since joining the Mariners, one of those hits a grand slam in his first game.
