Rangers Vs. Mariners: Wednesday Lineups

The Rangers look to avoid dropping another series to the lowly Seattle Mariners, as the two teams take part in the rubber match of a three-game series on Wednesday night.

Both Ron Washington and Eric Wedge have announced their starting lineups for the game, and they are as follows:

Seattle Mariners

2B Dustin Ackley
RF Chone Figgins
3B Kyle Seager
DH Jesus Montero
1B Justin Smoak
LF Alex Liddi
C Miguel Olivo
CF Michael Saunders
SS Brendan Ryan

SP Blake Beaven

Texas Rangers

2B Ian Kinsler
3B Michael Young
CF Josh Hamilton
DH Adrian Beltre
LF David Murphy
RF Nelson Cruz
C Mike Napoli
1B Mitch Moreland
SS Alberto Gonzalez

Noticeably absent from Seattle's lineup is Ichiro Suzuki. With the Mariners having an off-day on Thursday, this will give the aging speedster two days off.

As far as Texas' lineup goes, neither of Texas' plus-defenders on the left side of the infield will be playing there tonight, as Elvis Andrus is not in the lineup, and Adrian Beltre is serving as the designated hitter.
