Lineup: Nelson Cruz is DH, Elvis Andrus off

Nelson Cruz returns to the starting lineup in right field after getting a break (he did pinch hit) last night to rest a sore right hamstring. Elvis Andrus gets the day off as manager Ron Washington gives some of his regulars breaks not only because of the turf in Rogers Centre, but with the club playing a string of 20 straight games without an off day. That puts Michael Young at shortstop. The lineups:


2B Ian Kinsler

SS Michael Young

LF Josh Hamilton

3B Adrian Beltre

DH Nelson Cruz

RF David Murphy

1B Mitch Moreland

CF Craig Gentry

C Luis Martinez
