Rangers Vs. Athletics: Roy Oswalt Tries To Help Texas Get Back On Track

The Texas Rangers are stumbling a little bit entering Tuesday's game against the Oakland Athletics, having gone 4-6 in their last 10 games. The A's however enter this game having won nine of their last 10 games with a four-game winning streak.

The Rangers will throw pitcher Roy Oswalt to the mound as he looks to throw another impressive game after going five and two-thirds against the Minnesota Twins on July 8. In that game, Oswalt pitched allowed only one run on five hits, striking out three and walking two.

In the batting lineup, there is only change from Sunday's game against the Seattle Mariners. Catcher Mike Napoli will catch for Oswalt rather than catcher Yorvit Torrealba. The only other change is that Josh Hamilton will play in left field rather than being the designated hitter and David Murphy will be the designated hitter.

The rest of the Rangers' lineup is as follows.

1. Ian Kinsler (R) 2B
2. Elvis Andrus (R) SS
3. Josh Hamilton (L) LF
4. Adrian Beltre (R) 3B
5. Michael Young (R) 1B
6. Nelson Cruz (R) RF
7. David Murphy (L) DH
8. Mike Napoli (R) C
9. Craig Gentry (R) CF

The game is scheduled for a 10:05 p.m. ET first pitch from Oakland Coliseum. Television coverage will be provided by Fox Sports Southwest with radio coverage provided by 103.3 ESPN FM.
