ARLINGTON, Texas -- Rangers manager Ron Washington's original lineup had Endy Chavez at designated hitter and David Murphy in left field, but the skipper flipped those.

"Endy covers more ground out there," Washington said.

Struggling Mitch Moreland is not in the lineup (with Michael Young at first) and neither is Yorvit Torrealba, who is 4-for-9 in this AL Championship Series.

Having Chavez in the lineup at No. 9 does give him some more speed at the bottom of the order and the possibility of bunting or playing hit and run. Craig Gentry would also be available to pinch-hit if needed and could go into the field.

The lineups:

TIGERS
CF Austin Jackson
RF Ryan Raburn
1B Miguel Cabrera
DH Victor Martinez (S)
LF Delmon Young
SS Jhonny Peralta
C Alex Avila (L)
3B Brandon Inge
2B Ramon Santiago (S)

RANGERS
2B Ian Kinsler
SS Elvis Andrus
CF Josh Hamilton (L)
1B Michael Young
3B Adrian Beltre
C Mike Napoli
RF Nelson Cruz
DH David Murphy (L)
LF Endy Chavez (L)

RHP Max Scherzer vs. LHP Derek Holland
