After the mauling of last night, this lefty-heavy squad now gets to face a right-handed starter. So, it was fun while it lasted Texas, but really, Colby Lewis is just sorta in the way.

Today's Lineups

Leonys Martin - CF Shin-Soo Choo - RF
Kyle Seager - 3B Ian Desmond - CF
Robinson Cano - 2B Prince Fielder - DH
Nelson Cruz - RF Adrian Beltre - 3B
Adam Lind - 1B Rougned Odor - 2B
Seth Smith - DH Ryan Rua - 1B
Luis Sardinas - LF Justin Ruggiano - LF
Steve Clevenger - C Bryan Holaday - C
Ketel Marte - SS Hanser Alberto - SS
Wade Miley - LHP Colby Lewis - RHP

Nori Aoki gets a day off and the first-base-bomb-blast Luis Sardinas gets his first start in left field. As well, Steve Clevenger sees the field for the first time. As rumor had it, Seags slides up to the #2 slot and Ketel drops down to the #9 slot with a righty on the mound. Adam Lind comes back in at first and Seth Smith gets a start at DH while Nellie goes back in to right.

On the rubber today is Wade Miley, he of an incredibly quick pace and an incredibly scruffy beard. This means the return of old friend Justin Ruggiano as a Ranger. Miley's flyball tendency should give us a chance to see Sardinas in some outfield action and hopefully not too much of Nelson chasing flyballs. Let's watch Leonys work. Seriously though, this lineup should mash Colby Lewis. Time for some afternoon fun!
