Tonight's Rangers-Red Sox lineups

Elvis Andrus is getting a day off and Michael Young is making his first start at shortstop this season. Andrus left Sunday's game with a sore right shoulder, but manager Ron Washington said Andrus would return to the lineup on Tuesday.

Washington also said that Geovany Soto would catch on Tuesday, and wanted to get him acclimated to Fenway Park. Therefore, he went with Soto at designated hitter and Young at shortstop.

Washington said the error committed by Alberto Gonzalez on Sunday in the 10th inning had nothing to do with how he set the lineup.

Texas -- 1. Ian Kinsler, 2b; 2. Michael Young, ss; 3. Josh Hamilton, cf; 4. Adrian Beltre, 3b; 5. Nelson Cruz, rf; 6. David Murphy, lf; 7. Mike Napoli, c; 8. Geovany Soto, dh; 9. Mitch Moreland, 1b.

RHP Yu Darvish (11-7, 4.38 ERA)

Boston -- 1. Jacoby Ellsbury, cf; 2. Carl Crawford, lf; 3. Dustin Pedroia, 2b; 4. Adrian Gonzalez, 1b; 5. Cody Ross, dh; 6. Jarrod Saltalamacchia, c; 7. Will Middlebrooks, 3b; 8. Ryan Kalish, rf; 9. Mike Aviles, ss.

RHP Aaron Cook (2-5, 5.24)
