Tuesday's Rangers-Cubs lineups: David Murphy rests

The Rangers had an off day Monday and a left-hander is pitching for the Cubs Tuesday night, so manager Ron Washington decided to get left fielder David Murphy a game off. Murphy gets two days in a row while missing only one game, and he also gets a chance to clear his head after starting the season with a .160 average. Jeff Baker, the former Cubs utility man, starts for Murphy.

Rangers lineup vs. LHP Travis Wood: Ian Kinsler, 2b; Elvis Andrus, ss; Adrian Beltre, 3b; Nelson Cruz, rf; A.J. Pierzynski, c; Jeff Baker, lf; Mitch Moreland, 1b; Craig Gentry, cf; Derek Holland, p.

Cubs lineup vs. LHP Derek Holland: Dave Sappelt, cf; Starlin Castro, ss; Anthony Rizzo, 1b; Alfonso Soriano, 2b; Scott Hairston, rf; Welington Castillo, c; Darwin Barney, 2b; Alberto Gonzalez, 3b; Travis Wood, p.
