BOSTON -- Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre is back in the starting lineup and batting cleanup after missing two games with a strained left hamstring.

Also, reliever Joseph Ortiz was optioned to Triple-A Round Rock to make room for right-hander Alexi Ogando, who will start tonight's game against the Boston Red Sox.

Ortiz allowed six runs, three of them earned, pitching in relief Tuesday night in the Rangers' 17-5 loss to Boston. Ortiz allowed a home run in three consecutive innings, the first Texas reliever to do that since Mike Adams last season.

Ogando is 4-2 with a 3.08 ERA for nine starts this season.
