Rangers World Series Game 1 Starting Lineup

Per John Blake.

Texas Rangers vs. RHP Chris Carpenter

  1. Ian Kinsler - 2B
  2. Elvis Andrus - SS
  3. Josh Hamilton - CF
  4. Michael Young - 1B
  5. Adrian Beltre - 3B
  6. Nelson Cruz - RF
  7. Mike Napoli - C
  8. David Murphy - LF
  9. C.J. Wilson - P

Games in the National League mean, obviously, no DH. Nothing out of the ordinary from the lineup otherwise, outside of Ron Washington moving Nelson Cruz up one spot -- and Mike Napoli down -- in response to one of the greatest League Championship Series ever seen.

No announcement on the Cardinals lineup yet. Stay tuned.
