Texas Rangers lineup for May 23, 2021 against the Houston Astros: starting pitchers are Mike Foltynewicz for the Rangers and Cristian Javier for the Astros.

The Rangers are looking for a sweep against the Astros in this three game (rather than four game, as I said in last night’s Thoughts post) series. For the second day in a row a former Astro takes the mound for Texas, with Mike Foltynewicz seeing if he can get his command demons under control and do a better job avoiding the middle of the plate than he has the last few outings.

The lineup:

Calhoun — DH

Solak — 2B

Lowe — 1B

Garcia — CF

Gallo— RF

IKF — SS

Dahl — LF

Holt — 3B

Heim — C

1:35 p.m. start time. Roof is closed. Powder blue unis and caps.
