Rangers Vs. Orioles Starting Lineups

Derek Holland takes the mound on Wednesday night, as the Texas Rangers look to take the rubber match of a three-game series against the Baltimore Orioles at home in Arlington.

Both Buck Showalter and Ron Washington have announced Wednesday night's starting lineups, and they are as follows:

Baltimore Orioles

RF Nick Markakis
SS J.J. Hardy
CF Adam Jones
C Matt Wieters
1B Mark Reynolds
DH Lew Ford
LF Nate McLouth
3B Manny Machado
2B Robert Andino

SP Tommy Hunter

Texas Rangers

2B Ian Kinsler
SS Elvis Andrus
CF Josh Hamilton
3B Adrian Beltre
RF Nelson Cruz
DH Michael Young
LF David Murphy
C Geovany Soto
1B Mitch Moreland

Once again, Washington insists on batting Young sixth in the lineup, despite the fact that Murphy and Moreland are more capable hitters -- especially against a right handed pitcher.

Rangers fans again get a look at one of baseball's top young talents in Manny Machado, as the Orioles push toward a wild card spot.
