Worth noting

• Right fielder Michael Morse was back in the lineup Saturday after being scratched Friday with eye irritation. Morse said he had trouble with a contact lens prior to Friday's game, with the lens getting shoved into the corner of his eye and causing him blurriness that didn't go away until Saturday morning.

• Mariners closer Tom Wilhelmsen has been perfect against right-handed hitters this season, with righties 0-for-34 against him going into Saturday's game.
