ALCS Game 3: Rangers’ lineup versus Andy Pettitte

1 Comment

Here’s the Rangers’ lineup for Game 3 of the ALCS tonight against Andy Pettitte:

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, 1B

While the Yankees have gone with the same lineup in all four of their postseason games against left-handed starters the Rangers have mixed things up a bit versus southpaws.  Moreland gets the nod tonight over Jorge Cantu despite being a left-handed hitter while David Murphy sits in favor of Francoeur.

Texas has knocked around lefties to the tune of .299/.341/.468 in the playoffs so far.
