Oakland is starting lefthander Sean Nolin today, and Jeff Banister is countering with a more righty-heavy lineup than usual, including newly-recalled Ryan Rua getting the start in left field instead of fellow right handed hitters Ryan Strausborger or Drew Stubbs.

The lineup:

DeShields -- CF

Choo -- RF

Beltre -- 3B

Prince -- DH

Napoli -- 1B

Elvis -- SS

Odor -- 2B

Rua -- LF

Wilson -- C

Yovani Gallardo is on the mound for Texas.
