Rangers Make Small Lineup Tweaks For Game 4

Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington has posted his lineup for Tuesday afternoon’s Game 4, scheduled for a 2:07 ET first pitch:

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

Not much new here; the first seven spots in the lineup are identical to Monday’s lineup that faced lefthander David Price. Today, against righthander Jeremy Hellickson, Washington has replaced Craig Gentry, who played center field on Monday, with lefthanded hitting David Murphy, who will play left field. Josh Hamilton switches to center field.

Mitch Moreland, who has just one hit in this series (although it is a home run), is dropped to the No. 9 spot in the order. Moreland hit 16 home runs during the regular season, all but one of them off righthanders.
