OAKLAND, Calif. The Texas Rangers’ lineup for Tuesday comes directly from the Don’t Fix What Isn’t Broken file.

A night after scoring 14 runs against a left-handed starter, eight of the nine spots in manager Ron Washington’s lineup are the same as Oakland starts another lefty. Even the lone change, swapping out catcher Robinson Chirinos for Chris Gimenez, is based on previous success. Gimenez is the personal catcher for Rangers ace Yu Darvish, who is trying to snap a seven-loss streak to the A’s.

Daniel Robertson is atop the lineup again. In the past two times he has been the leadoff hitter, he is 4 for 11 with two doubles and two RBIs and the Rangers have scored 21 runs. Robertson is just a .211 hitter overall.

Rangers lineup vs. LHP Tommy Milone: Daniel Robertson, cf; Elvis Andrus, ss; Shin-Soo Choo, dh; Adrian Beltre, 3b; Alex Rios, rf; Donnie Murphy, 1b; Chris Gimenez, c; Michael Choice, lf; Rougned Odor, 2b.

A’s lineup vs. RHP Yu Darvish: Coco Crisp, cf; John Jaso, c; Yoenis Cespedes, lf; Brandon Moss, 1b; Jed Lowrie, dh; Stephen Vogt, rf; Alberto Callaspo, 3b; Nick Punto, ss; Eric Sogard, 2b.
