Rangers Vs. Red Sox: Tuesday Starting Lineups

Per Jeff Wilson, Ft. Worth Star-Telegram.

Texas Rangers vs. LHP Jon Lester

  1. Ian Kinsler, 2B
  2. Elvis Andrus, SS
  3. Josh Hamilton, LF
  4. Adrian Beltre, 3B
  5. Michael Young, DH
  6. Nelson Cruz, RF
  7. Mike Napoli, 1B
  8. Yorvit Torrealba, C
  9. Craig Gentry, CF

Boston Red Sox vs. RHP Colby Lewis

  1. Mike Aviles, SS
  2. Dustin Pedroia, 2B
  3. Adrian Gonzalez, 1B
  4. David Ortiz, DH
  5. Kevin Youkilis, 3B
  6. Ryan Sweeney, RF
  7. Cody Ross, LF
  8. Jarrod Saltalamacchia, C
  9. Jason Repko, CF

Thanks to the Jacoby Ellsbury injury, Lewis only has a lineup of two lefties to deal with -- Gonzalez and Ortiz -- as well as switch-hitting Saltalamacchia, who does unfortunately hit better from the left side.

With lefty Lester on the mound, it means another night off for David Murphy and Mitch Moreland. It also means the optimal defensive lineup, with Gentry starting in center.
