Hopper scratched; odd explanation
Norris Hopper was a late scratch from Sunday's lineup. He was to bat ninth and play right. Junior Griffey, who was going to DH, played right. Javier Valentin DHed.
Announced reason: Manager's decision.
Jerry Narron said after the game that he made out a couple of different lineups and he wanted to get Valentin at-bats.
But Griffey siad he asked to play right. "It wouldn't be fair to the people of Seattle for me to DH."
Hopper said the same thing.
