Ian Kinsler is in the lineup for the first time since July 27, batting sixth behind Nelson Cruz and in front of Mitch Moreland. Vladimir Guerrero is off, so David Murphy bats third and Josh Hamilton hits fourth as the designated hitter. They will be facing Matt Fox, who is making is big-league debut after the Twins used two starters in relief in a 13-inning loss Thursday. One was Nick Blackburn, who was scheduled to pitch tonight. He has been bumped to Sunday, which means that the Rangers will miss left-hander Brian Duensing.
