Seattle Mariners Opening Day 2011: Lineups For Oakland Athletics, Seattle Mariners

With just over an hour to play, the lineups for the Seattle Mariners and Oakland Athletics are in. We already knew the Mariners' lineup, which was announced on Thursday by manager Eric Wedge, but have been waiting on Oakland to release its lineup into the wild. Seattle Mariners' ace Felix Hernandez takes the bump at 7:05 p.m. to battle the division-rival Athletics on ROOT Sports.

Here's the Oakland side of the equation.

CF Coco Crisp
1B Daric Barton
RF David DeJesus
LF Josh Willingham
DH Hideki Matsui
C Kurt Suzuki
2B Mark Ellis
3B Kevin Kouzmanoff
SS Cliff Pennington

On the hill for the A's will be Trevor Cahill. He'll be facing the following lineup for the Mariners

RF Ichiro Suzuki
3B Chone Figgins
LF Milton Bradley
DH Jack Cust
1B Justin Smoak
C Miguel Olivo
CF Ryan Langerhans
SS Brendan Ryan
2B Jack Wilson

Langerhans gets the start for Franklin Gutierrez, who was placed on the disabled list with a stomach problem that's been ailing him for quite some time, but flared up during the spring. We also have full breakdown of the Mariners Opening Day lineup if you're looking for more information.
