Lineups: Chris Iannetta behind the plate as Mariners go for sweep

Sep 14, 2016, 4:31 PM

Hisashi Iwakuma takes the mound Wednesday for a Mariners team trying for its eighth win in a row and another series sweep.

Chris Iannetta will take over behind the plate for Mike Zunino, who was hitless during Tuesday’s 8-0 win over the Angels but called for an assortment of pitches that led to Taijuan Walker striking out 11 batters during the righty’s three-hit shutout.

Fresh off collecting his first major-league hit, Dan Vogelbach moves up to the sixth spot and will again start at first base. The 7:05 p.m. game will air live on 710 ESPN Seattle. The pregame show begins at 6.
