Here are the lineups for Game 3 of the Rangers-Rays series:

   TEXAS RANGERS              TAMPA BAY RAYS
1. Ian Kinsler, 2B         1. Desmond Jennings, LF
2. Elvis Andrus, SS        2. B.J. Upton, CF
3. Josh Hamilton, LF       3. Evan Longoria, 3B
4. Michael Young, DH       4. Matt Joyce, RF
5. Adrian Beltre, 3B       5. Johnny Damon, DH
6. Mike Napoli, C          6. Ben Zobrist, 2B
7. Nelson Cruz, RF         7. Casey Kotchman, 1B
8. Mitch Moreland, 1B      8. John Jaso, C
9. Craig Gentry, CF        9. Reid Brignac, SS

SP Colby Lewis, RHP        SP David Price, LHP

Ron Washington is using a different lineup against left-hander David Price than he used in Game 1 against left-hander Matt Moore, as Josh Hamilton and Craig Gentry flip-flop spots in the outfield and Michael Young slides from first base to designated hitter while Mitch Moreland (a lefty bat) replaces Yorvit Torrealba (a righty bat).

Meanwhile, after facing left-handed starters in back-to-back games the Rays are turning to their standard lineup versus right-handers, which includes three right-handed hitters atop the lineup followed by six consecutive left-handed (or switch-) hitters.

    Craig, or anyone who knows. Is there some kind of rule MLB puts on the time frame a line-up has to be made availible prior to game time?

    93 pitches and 1 hit and Ron Washington takes out Lewis? Why? What a complete putz. The Rangers continuing to win despite how horrible Washington is with his pitching staff.
