Wed, 22 May 2013 14:59:15 -0700
Seattle Mariners OF Jason Bay is batting leadoff Wednesday, May 22, and OF Mike Morse has been moved to No. 3 in the lineup. OF Michael Saunders is 4-for-32 (.125) with a .152 on-base percentage and a .188 slugging percentage during the team's road trip. Saunders is hitting second Wednesday and 3B Kyle Seager was rested. "I think he's expanded the (strike) zone a little bit from time to time," manager Eric Wedge said of Saunders. "You know what? When he stays in his zone, he does some damage. So, I think he's just expanded his zone, is trying to do too much. So, again, we're at our best when these guys are willing and able to set the bat down and take the walk and let the next guy get a shot at it."
