Wedge shakes up lineup for Interleague game

PITTSBURGH -- Seattle manager Eric Wedge inserted a few different players into his lineup for Wednesday's day game against the Pirates. Kendrys Morales was penciled in at first base, Jesus Montero was catching, Endy Chavez got the start in right field and Robert Andino was inserted at shortstop.

"It's a National League game, so all bets are off," Wedge said. "It's a totally different mindset. I wanted to give a couple of different guys opportunities, and also wanted to change it up a little bit, too. I thought that was important, too.


"Again, it's a different day, a day game after a night game. And you've got a different pitcher working against us, and we've got a different guy on the mound, too, so we'll see what happens."
