Wednesday night features a rubber match between the Texas Rangers and Oakland Athletics as each team battles in the AL West. The A's remain three games ahead of Texas for the division lead, but the Rangers will try to change that in the third game of this four-game series.

This series, tied so far at one apiece, is a significant one, as each of these teams are trying to claim the division lead heading into the All-Star break. So far this season, these teams have been pretty even, each winning four games in the season series.

Pitching for Oakland will be southpaw Tommy Milone. Milone has pitched well in his last few starts, but he hasn't gotten enough run support to win those games.

From the other dugout, Justin Grimm will take the mound for Texas. Grimm has not gotten the job done lately, losing two of his last three starts.

This should be a good battle in Arlington. Here are tonight's starting lineups:


Oakland Athletics

1. Young, CF

2. Lowrie, SS

3. Cespedes, DH

4. Moss, 1B

5. Donaldson, 3B

6. Smith, LF

7. Reddick, RF

8. Norris, C

9. Sogard, 2B


Texas Rangers

1. Kinsler, 2B

2. Andrus, SS

3. Cruz, RF

4. Beltre, 3B

5. Berkman, DH

6. Pierzynski, C

7. Chirinos, 1B

8. Murphy, LF

9. Martin, CF
