Jeff Banister sticks with lineup that has been working

After putting up 7 runs in each of the last two games, Jeff Banister is running the same group out again tonight

The Texas Rangers have given D/FW residents half priced pizza the past two games, and going with the “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” theory, Jeff Banister is sticking with the same lineup he’s rolled with in the previous two.

The lineup:

Gomez -- CF

Elvis -- SS

Mazara — DH

Napoli — 1B

Odor — 2B

Lucroy — C

Choo — RF

Gallo — 3B

Profar — LF

Yu Darvish is on the mound, facing...someone named Andrew Triggs. I haven’t heard of him, although apparently he started against Texas last year and also had a relief appearance, and held Rangers batters to 2 hits in 22 at bats.

Update — In a late switch, Choo is now in right field, instead of DH, while Mazara is at DH, instead of RF.
