Rangers Vs. Rockies: Saturday Lineups

No, Roy Oswalt won't make his Rangers debut like he did on Friday night, but the Rangers are still worth watching on Saturday, as they play host to the Colorado Rockies in the second game of a three-game interleague series.

Colby Lewis gets the nod for the Rangers, as he looks to improve upon his 3.00 ERA and 1.00 WHIP. He'll be opposed by Josh Outman, who has struggled mightily for the Rockies, with an 0-3 record to go along with an 8.41 ERA.

Both Ron Washington and Jim Tracy have announced the starting lineups for Saturday's game, and they are as follows:

Colorado Rockies

SS Jonathan Herrera
3B Jordan Pacheco
LF Carlos Gonzalez
DH Jason Giambi
1B Michael Cuddyer
RF Tyler Colvin
2B Chris Nelson
C Wil Nieves
CF Dexter Fowler

SP Josh Outman

Texas Rangers

2B Ian Kinsler
SS Elvis Andrus
LF Josh Hamilton
3B Adrian Beltre
DH Michael Young
RF Nelson Cruz
1B Mike Napoli
C Yorvit Torrealba
CF Craig Gentry

SP Colby Lewis

Once again, Michael Young is serving as the designated hitter, and batting ahead of Nelson Cruz and Mike Napoli. Hopefully, this won't come back to bite Ron Washington in the behind today.
