Notes: Thome was available to pinch hit. With Thome out, Griffey moved from right field to designated hitter. Swisher went from center to right, and DeWayne Wise started in center. ... Wise was replaced by Brian Anderson in the top of the fifth after straining a muscle near his groin. ... Mariners RHP Carlos Silva (right elbow tendinitis) is feeling better and could start on Aug. 31, manager Jim Riggleman said. ... Seattle RHP Brandon Morrow, who is being converted to a starter, is scheduled to throw about 70 pitches for Triple-A Tacoma on Thursday. Riggleman said Morrow likely will make one or two more starts and be called up when rosters expand on September 1. ... LHP Erik Bedard's most recent bullpen session didn't go as well as hoped and his next throwing session, scheduled for Saturday, likely will be pushed back. Riggleman hopes to have Bedard back before the end of the season but called a potential return "gravy if he does." ... Riggleman said RHP Felix Hernandez, whose previously injured left ankle was hit by a hard groundball on Tuesday, was fine.
