A's vs. Rangers Lineups: Moreland back in at 1B for Texas

The Texas Rangers will look to rebound from a 10-inning loss to the Oakland Athletics as the two teams get set to play Game 3 of their four-game series on Wednesday night in Arlington, Texas. First baseman Mitch Moreland, who is 4-for-7 at the plate in his last two starts, is in the lineup after sitting out for most of Tuesday's game.

Here are the full lineups:

A's

1. Stephen Drew SS
2. Jonny Gomes LF
3. Yoenis Cespedes CF
4. Chris Carter DH
5. Brandon Moss B
6. Josh Donaldson 3B
7. Josh Reddick RF
8. Derek Norris C
9. Cliff Pennington 2B

Rangers

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

Martin Perez (1-2, 3.78 ERA) will take the mound for the Rangers. The 21-year-old lefty recently returned to the starting rotation for the first time in a month, and allowed three earned runs in four innings his last time out. Meanwhile, Jarrod Parker (11-8, 3.40 ERA) gets the ball for Oakland. First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m. CT.
