With left-hander C.J. Wilson on the mound, Washington went with his all right-handed lineup on Friday night. That meant Yorvit Torrealba at catcher and Mike Napoli at first base.
Adrian Beltre, who still has the sore left hamstring, was back at designated hitter on Friday night. He played third base in Game 1 of the doubleheader on Thursday, but Washington wanted him at DH on Friday with the potential for bad weather.
The Rangers landed a little after 2 a.m. CT on Friday morning after their doubleheader against the Orioles on Thursday night. There was little complaining about the travel. Said Washington, "I got a good night's sleep. I got in at 4, still got seven hours, had a good breakfast and I'm ready to go."
Triple-A Round Rock infielder Yangervis Solarte took a 21-game hitting streak into Monday's game against Salt Lake, while Jurickson Profar had a 20-game hitting streak for Double-A Frisco.
