We had the celebratory “regulars sit” lineup on Saturday after the Rangers clinched the division Friday night, and then Elvis Andrus and Nomar Mazara, the two regulars who played Saturday, got a day off in Sunday’s loss.

With the Rangers back at home and fighting for home field advantage, however, Jeff Banister isn’t taking his foot off the gas, instead rolling with the usual lineup for tonight’s opener against Milwaukee.

The lineup:

Gomez -- LF

Desmond -- CF

Beltran -- DH

Beltre — 3B

Odor — 2B

Lucroy -- C

Moreland — 1B

Mazara — RF

Elvis — SS

Martin Perez is on the mound, going up against Matt Garza. Hopefully the Rangers bunt on him.
