SURPRISE, Ariz. -- The teams took considerable liberties with their lineups on Tuesday when the Rangers defeated the Royals, 3-0, in a "B" game on the Texas side of their shared complex.
The Royals started out with just six batters, five Major Leaguers plus non-roster catcher Frank Pena, who did nothing but hit while Minor Leaguers were sent out to play defense. The Rangers used an eight-man lineup, minus the DH, which also played defense.
