Tonight's Rangers-Tigers lineups

Ian Kinsler has been placed on the disabled list, but his replacement -- top prospect Jurickson Profar -- isn't in the lineup. Instead, Leury Garcia is making his third straight start at second base.

Elvis Andrus will lead off and David Murphy will bat second. The Rangers are also going with center fielder Craig Gentry against Tigers right-hander Doug Fister, as manager Ron Washington wants to keep both Gentry and Leonys Martin involved.

Washington pinch-hit Gentry late in Saturday's game, as he planned to give Gentry a rare start against a right-hander.

Texas -- 1. Elvis Andrus, ss; 2. David Murphy, lf; 3. Lance Berkman, dh; 4. Adrian Beltre, 3b; 5. Nelson Cruz, rf; 6. Mitch Moreland, 1b; 7. Geovany Soto, c; 8. Craig Gentry, cf; 9. Leury Garcia, 2b.

LHP Derek Holland (3-2, 2.93 ERA)

Detroit -- 1. Omar Infante, 2b; 2. Torii Hunter, rf; 3. Miguel Cabrera, 3b; 4. Prince Fielder, 1b; 5. Victor Martinez, dh; 6. Matt Tuiasosopo, lf; 7. Jhonny Peralta, ss; 8. Brayan Pena, c; 9. Avisail Garcia, cf.

RHP Doug Fister (5-1, 3.06)
