The Rangers are putting their best foot forward offensively against right-hander Tim Lincecum. That means David Murphy is in as the Rangers try to stave off elimination in Game 5. The Giants' lineup looks different than the one that beat Cliff Lee in Game 1. The only new face is Aaron Rowand, but manager Bruce Bochy has done some serious shuffling.
