Just a few days after Young was ruled out of the ALCS, he is back in the lineup for game two after an ankle injury to Magglio Ordonez. With Ordonez out, Raburn can remain in the outfield, where he is a significantly better fielder than he is at second base, but if Young is not 100% at the plate, it may still be a net gain for Texas.

Nothing at all brow-raising from the Rangers' lineup.
