Athletics Vs. Mariners Lineups: Series Kicks Off In Oakland

The Oakland Athletics are flying at the moment and hoping to continue carrying that momentum all the way into the All-Star break. The only thing standing in their way are old rivals the Seattle Mariners. These two teams have already played one another plenty of times this season, but the A's are on a big upswing and the Mariners seem to be settling into a familiar rut as one of the worst teams in the American League.

The A's will send what has been a very consistent lineup as of late to the plate against the Mariners. The x factor in the Seattle lineup is Carlos Peguero, who has been called up to fill an outfield spot for Franklin Gutierrez, who is on the 7-day concussion DL.

Here are the starting lineups for Friday's series opener:

Athletics

1. Coco Crisp (S) CF
2. Jemile Weeks (S) 2B
3. Josh Reddick (L) RF
4. Yoenis Cespedes (R) LF
5. Seth Smith (L) DH
6. Brandon Moss (L) 1B
7. Derek Norris (R) C
8. Brandon Inge (R) 3B
9. Cliff Pennington (S) SS

Mariners

1. Ichiro Suzuki (L) DH
2. Casper Wells (R) LF
3. Michael Saunders (L) CF
4. Miguel Olivo (R) C
5. Kyle Seager (L) 3B
6. Justin Smoak (S) 1B
7. Carlos Peguero (L) RF
8. Dustin Ackley (L) 2B
