The Rangers are using the same lineup for a second consecutive day, a rarity of late, against Brownwood product Shelby Miller, who has a tidy 2.08 ERA in his rookie season. That means that Nelson Cruz is batting third again, a spot he is likely to remain through the rest of the road trip.
Rangers lineup vs. RHP Shelby Miller: Ian Kinsler, 2b; Elvis Andrus, ss; Nelson Cruz, rf; Adrian Beltre, 3b; A.J. Pierzynski, c; Mitch Moreland, 1b; David Murphy, lf; Leonys Martin, cf; Martin Perez, p.
Cardinals lineup vs. LHP Martin Perez: Matt Carpenter, 2b; Carlos Beltran, rf; Matt Holliday, lf; Allen Craig, 1b; Yadier Molina, c; David Freese, 3b; Shane Robinson, cf; Pete Kozma, ss; Shelby Miller, p.
