SEATTLE (AP) -The Seattle Mariners scratched Erik Bedard as their starting pitcher before Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Angels because of inflammation in his left hip.
``His hip flared up again,'' manager John McLaren said. ``We were hoping the medication would kick in like it did in Baltimore, but he still feels it a little bit so we're going to play it on the safe side.''
Bedard (1-0, 3.27) missed a scheduled start April 6 at Baltimore because of the hip injury, but pitched six innings to earn a 6-5 win at Tampa Bay on April 8 in his second start of the season.
``We'll see how he feels tomorrow,'' McLaren said. ``If he feels OK, he'll throw in the bullpen and we'll slot him next week sometime. It's one of those things where we're trying to be patient with our pitchers early in the season. We don't think it's serious.''
Cha Seung Baek (0-0, 27.00) started in place of Bedard. Baek pitched one inning in relief and allowed three earned runs April 4 against Baltimore in his only appearance this season.
