Home away from home
SEATTLE — A rarity will take place on Friday night at Safeco Field. Pitchers will bat in an American League park.
Due to the scheduling change, the Marlins will be the home team at Safeco Field for their three-game set with the Mariners.
Ricky Nolasco takes the mound in the first of three, while Seattle goes with Felix Hernandez.
National League rules will apply, so the pitchers will bat.
