Lineups for Mariners-Tigers, as King Felix and David Price square off

David Price and Felix Hernandez have never faced each other on the mound — at least not until Saturday night's game at Comerica Park.

The Mariners enter the contest a half-game up on the Tigers for the second Wild Card slot in the American League. Detroit is a game and a half out of first in the American League Central, matching their largest deficit of the season.

Price's first pitch at home, ironically, will be to one of the players he was traded for, Austin Jackson.

On Friday, Jackson was welcomed back to Comerica Park for the first time since the trade.
