The Rangers have released their batting lineup for Game 4 of the World Series against the Giants. From ESPN Dallas:
1. Elvis Andrus, SS
2. Michael Young, 3B
3. Josh Hamilton, CF
4. Vladimir Guerrero, DH
5. Nelson Cruz, LF
6. Ian Kinsler, 2B
7. Jeff Francoeur, RF
8. Bengie Molina, C
9. Mitch Moreland
The Rangers are going with the same lineup as Game 3, which makes sense given that they out-hit the Giants 8-5 on Saturday night. San Francisco’s Madison Bumgarner, 21, will be on the mound. He is a lefty.
MLB.com’s Scott Merkin reports that White Sox outfielder Avisail Garcia has been placed on the 10-day disabled list with a strained right hamstring. The club called up outfielder Daniel Palka from Triple-A Charlotte.
Garcia, 26, suffered the injury during Monday’s game against the Mariners. He is off to a slow start this season, batting .233/.250/.315 with a home run and four RBI in 76 plate appearances.
Palka, 26, has been playing well for Charlotte, batting .286/.384/.476 with three home runs and seven RBI in 73 PA.
