Rays-Rangers ALDS: Texas Lineup For Game One

The Texas Rangers have posted their American League Division Series game one lineup, and it features a majority of right handed hitters. It is as follows:

Ian Kinsler, 2B
Elvis Andrus, SS
Josh Hamilton, CF
Michael Young, 1B
Adrian Beltre, 3B
Mike Napoli, C
Nelson Cruz, RF
Yorvit Torrealba, DH
Craig Gentry, LF
C.J. Wilson, P

The lineup is heavily right handed, presenting a great challenge to Rays rookie LHP Matt Moore, who will be making just his second major league start Friday.

Wilson, 30, is a 16 game winner that has dominated the Tampa Bay Rays in 2011. He has posted a 2-0 record in three starts with an ERA right around 2. The Rays are hitting just .152 off Wilson and will need to break out and find a way to get some runs off Wilson early if they hope to compete, as Texas boasts one of the leagues deepest and most talented bullpens.

Check back later as we will update this stream as soon as the Rays lineup is available.
