Pitchers prep for interleague, take batting practice

SEATTLE -- With an interleague series at Colorado on the horizon (May 18-20), Mariners pitchers took batting practice prior to Saturday's game with the Twins.

Mariners manager Eric Wedge, who said he caught a little bit of the action on the television in his office, smiled when asked if he'd think about pinch-hitting any of the pitchers.

"We got plenty of volunteers, they'll all do it, you know that," he said with a laugh. "Hitters want to pitch and pitchers want to hit."
