Manager Ron Washington on Wednesday afternoon was considering a day off for Leonys Martin with the idea of getting Michael Choice some needed at-bats. But Martin changed the manager’s mind a few hours later by collecting an eighth-inning triple and the game-winning single in the ninth inning of a 3-2 comeback victory.

Choice is almost certain to start Saturday, when Chicago starts left-hander Jose Quintana. Choice could also be in the lineup Tuesday at Oakland against lefty Dan Straily.

Mariners lineup vs. RHP Tanner Scheppers: Abraham Almonte, cf; Brad Miller, ss; Robinson Cano, 2b; Corey Hart, rf; Kyle Seager, 3b; Nick Franklin, 2b; Justin Smoak, 1b; Dustin Ackley, lf; John Buck, c.

Rangers lineup vs. RHP Erasmo Ramirez: Shin-Soo Choo, lf; Elvis Andrus, ss; Alex Rios, rf; Prince Fielder, 1b; Kevin Kouzmanoff, 3b; Mitch Moreland, dh; Donnie Murphy, 2b; Leonys Martin, cf; J.P. Arencibia, c.
