ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Nelson Cruz is in the Texas Rangers’ lineup, batting fifth and in right field as usual, for Game 6 of the AL championship series against the New York Yankees.

Manager Ron Washington says Cruz is “ready to go” for Friday night’s game, two days after coming out of Game 5 early after feeling tightness in his troublesome left hamstring.

Cruz missed 51 games in the regular season because of three stints on the disabled list because of hamstring issues, twice for the left hamstring.

Washington says Cruz, pulled early Wednesday as a precaution, can play with no limitations.

Cruz went into Game 6 leading the Rangers with nine extra-base hits and 10 runs in 10 postseason games.
