Lineups: Adrian Beltre back at 3B

SEATTLE -- The Rangers look to rebound from Friday’s 6-3 loss to Seattle with the second set of three-game series at Safeco Field.

Adrian Beltre is back in the lineup after missing Friday’s game. He blasted a go-ahead, ninth inning home run Thursday night against the Angels, then saw doctors Friday morning in Los Angeles for his intestinal issues. Beltre flew up to Seattle on Friday night and should be ready to go.

Josh Hamilton is out for the series with ongoing vision and balance issues. The All-Star hasn’t played since leaving Tuesday’s game.

Matt Harrison will try to win his 18th game this season, which would tie Kenny Rogers for most victories by a Rangers lefty. A win would also keep Harrison tied with David Price and Jered Weaver for most wins in the American League.
