SEATTLE -- Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon will miss the club's next two games on Friday and Saturday against the Nationals while attending his daughter Schenell's wedding in Chesterton, Ind.

Schenell, 31, is the older of McClendon's two children.

Bench coach Trent Jewett will run the team in McClendon's absence. The first-year Mariners skipper has guided the club to a 72-60 record going into Friday's series against the National League East-leading Nationals.

Jewett, 50, is in his seventh season as a Major League coach, and first with the Mariners. He spent the past three seasons with the Nationals, first as their first-base coach in 2011-12, and then as third-base coach last year.

Jewett spent 17 seasons managing in the Minor Leagues, including 12 seasons at the Triple-A level, and has a career record of 1,178-1,166.
