Rangers use regulars but juggle lineup against Angels

New, comments

The Ranger lineup has the same batters as Opening Day, but in a different order

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

The Texas Rangers' lineup tonight features the same hitters as were in the lineup on Opening Day (and Game Two), but Jeff Banister has juggled the lineup slightly from what he used in the first two games.

DeShields -- CF

Choo -- RF

Beltre -- 3B

Prince -- DH

Desmond -- LF

Moreland -- 1B

Odor -- 2B

Elvis -- SS

Chirinos -- C

Derek Holland is pitching for Texas.

This alignment breaks up Shin-Soo Choo and Prince Fielder, who had been #2 and #3 in the order.  The Rangers are sticking with Mitch Moreland at first base, even though lefty Hector Santiago starts for the Angels.
