Lineups: Geovany Soto catching Matt Garza


Matt Garza will be throwing to a familiar face when he makes his Rangers debut Wednesday night. Geovany Soto, who caught Garza when the two played for the Chicago Cubs, will get the start behind the plate. Garza was 11-13 with a 3.69 ERA when he and Soto were battery mates in Chicago. A.J. Pierzynski will DH. Jeff Baker will play left field against Yankees left-hander Andy Pettitte. Baker, another former Cub, is hitting a smoldering .404 against lefties in his first season in Texas.
