Left-hander Joe Saunders is pitching for Seattle on Saturday, and the left-handed-hitting Mitch Moreland is out of the lineup for the Rangers. Moreland has started the season 1 for 12 against lefties, but faced one Friday night in a critical spot and drew a walk. The switch-hitting Lance Berkman, who isn't as good as a right-handed hitter, also sits. Elvis Andrus will DH, and Leury Garcia will get his first career start at shortstop.
Rangers lineup vs. LHP Joe Saunders: Ian Kinsler, 2b; Elvis Andrus, ss; Adrian Beltre, 3b; Nelson Cruz, rf; A.J. Pierzynski, c; Jeff Baker, 1b; David Murphy, lf; Craig Gentry, cf; Leury Garcia, ss.
Mariners lineup vs. RHP Alexi Ogando: Endy Chavez, cf; Jason Bay, rf; Kendrys Morales, dh; Raul Ibanez, lf; Justin Smoak, 1b; Kyle Seager, 3b; Kelly Shoppach, c; Dustin Ackley, 2b; Brendan Ryan, ss.
