Lineups: Mitch Moreland back at first base

By Robert Falkoff / Special to ESPNDallas.com

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- First baseman Mitch Moreland, who didn’t start Monday against Kansas City with a left-hander on the mound, is back in the Rangers lineup for Tuesday’s game. Moreland got into the series opener on Labor Day as a defensive replacement and delivered a hit to snap an 0-for-14 slump. The Rangers hope that hit will get Moreland going again offensively.
