Texas Rangers Vs. New York Yankees: Ron Washington's Lineup Stays The Same

With the Texas Rangers about to kick off a crucial series against the New York Yankees, manager Ron Washington has decided to stick with a proven lineup for the Rangers after a big series win against the Detroit Tigers at home.

NEW YORK YANKEES
SS Derek Jeter
DH Nick Swisher
2B Robinson Cano
1B Mark Teixeira
3B Eric Chavez
CF Curtis Granderson
C Russell Martin
LF Raul Ibanez
RF Ichiro Suzuki
SP David Phelps

TEXAS RANGERS
2B Ian Kinsler
SS Elvis Andrus
CF Josh Hamilton
3B Adrian Beltre
RF Nelson Cruz
DH Michael Young
LF David Murphy
C Geovany Soto
1B Mitch Moreland
SP Ryan Dempster

Josh Hamilton looks to be going through a late-season resurgence after more than two months of offensive hostility, with the star outfielder hitting .319 with a .945 OPS so far in the month of August. His three home runs and 15 RBIs already outnumber his output in July.
