Astros Vs. Rangers Game 2 Lineup: Houston Rearranges Batting Order

The Houston Astros will be going up against right-handed Justin Grimm who is making his first major league start for the Texas Rangers on Saturday night, and he will be matched up against the Astros Lucas Harrell.

The Astros lineup has the same players as Friday night, but the order has been rearranged. Jordan Schafer is now the lead off hitter as he swapped spots with Jose Altuve to bat second. J.D. Martinez has been dropped in the order from fourth and is now batting seventh with Brett Wallace taking that clean up spot.

The Rangers have only two changes for Saturday's lineup with catcher Mike Napoli in the lineup getting the start instead of Yorvit Torrealba, and then Craig Gentry playing centerfield.
