2011 World Series: Rangers' Game 7 Lineup

Oh, it's just Game 7 of the World Series. That's all. With right-hander Chris Carpenter presumably starting for the St. Louis Cardinals tonight, Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington has posted this lineup:

1. Ian Kinsler (R) 2B
2. Elvis Andrus (R) SS
3. Josh Hamilton (L) CF
4. Michael Young (R) 1B
5. Adrian Beltre (R) 3B
6. Nelson Cruz (R) RF
7. Mike Napoli (R) C
8. David Murphy (L) LF
9. Matt Harrison (L) P

Hey, good news for the Rangers! This is actually the lineup Ron Washington would like to deploy against a right-handed starting pitcher. After Game 6, there were real questions about the availability of both Mike Napoli and Nelson Cruz for Game 7, given their injuries. But apparently they're feeling good enough, at the very least, to convince Washington they can play.

Otherwise, the only notable change is in left field; as usual, lefty-hitting David Murphy gets the nod. And still Endy Chavez waits ...
