Angels vs. Rangers Lineups: Albert Pujols Plays DH, L.A. Desperately Looking For Win

The Los Angeles Angels have seen just about everything go wrong for them in 2012. Despite many experts and analysts picking LAA to make a deep playoff run, the club is just 14-19 against some pretty mediocre competition and have struggled to consistently score runs consistently. Following an embarrassing blowout loss to the Rangers on Friday night, the Angels are shaking things up a bit.

Here are the lineups for the Angels and Rangers. Despite making the start in game one of the series, C.J. Wilson will take the mound once again on Saturday afternoon.

Angels:

Mike Trout LF
Alberto Callaspo 3B
Albert Pujols DH
Torii Hunter RF
Mark Trumbo 1B
Howie Kendrick 2B
Peter Bourjos CF
Erick Aybar SS
John Hester C
C.J. Wilson LHP

Rangers:

Ian Kinsler 2B
Elvis Andrus SS
Josh Hamilton LF
Adrian Beltre DH
Michael Young 3B
Nelson Cruz RF
Mike Napoli C
Brandon Snyder 1B
Craig Gentry CF

First pitch on Saturday is set for 10:05 a.m. PT. That's 1:05 p.m. on the east coast.
