It's always refreshing when Jim Tracy figures out something new about making lineups. Of course I'm referring to the catcher, Wilin Rosario, hitting higher than 7th. He'd let Ramon Hernandez do that every now and then. Rosario may have done it once or twice already, but it's not often. And of course Chris Iannetta never hit higher than 8th, so congrats to Jim there.

Oh, and there's Dexter Fowler hitting 9th again. Guess we can't win them all.

Texas Rangers (44-28)
  1. Ian Kinsler (2B)
  2. Elvis Andrus (SS)
  3. Josh Hamilton (LF)
  4. Adrian Beltre (3B)
  5. Michael Young (1B)
  6. Nelson Cruz (DH)
  7. David Murphy (RF)
  8. Mike Napoli (C)
  9. Leonys Martin (CF)
Matt Harrison (9-3, 3.41)
