Lineups: Mike Olt, Craig Gentry get starts

8/17/2012

With lefty J.A. Happ on the mound for the Blue Jays, right-handed hitters Mike Olt and Craig Gentry are in the starting lineup for the Rangers on Friday in Toronto.

Right fielder Nelson Cruz is out of the starting lineup for the second consecutive game. He didn't start Thursday against the Yankees but wound up with two at-bats after pinch hitting for Olt in the seventh inning.

Olt is playing third a day after starting in right against the Yankees, while Adrian Beltre is the DH. Michael Young is playing first, and Mitch Moreland sits against the lefty.
