There’s a different look to the Mariners’ lineup for Wednesday’s finale against the White Sox.

Left fielder Norichika Aoki and catcher Mike Zunino are both in the starting lineup after being recalled from Triple-A Tacoma. They join Felix Hernandez, who had been on the disabled list with a calf strain and hasn’t started since May 27, as returning players in action for Seattle.

First baseman Adam Lind will also get his first start since Monday’s walk-off homer in the 12:40 p.m. game, which will be live on 710 ESPN Seattle. The pregame show starts at 11:30 a.m.
