Sunday Rangers pregame notes

First, the lineup. Nothing is changing from Saturday to Sunday. It's Andrus, Young, Hamilton, Guerrero, Cruz, Kinsler, Murphy, Molina, Moreland.

Manager Ron Washington offered up his seat during his pregame meeting with the local media. When he was told it was too hot, he showed one loss hasn't dampened his sense of humor.

"It's cool," Washington said. "The heat just goes with the territory. You just get used to it."

Washington said he's sticking with Bengie Molina behind the plate today because he felt he got a good look at the Rays Saturday.

Washington said he had no regrets about going with Neftali Feliz to face Jason Bartlett Saturday instead of sticking with Darren O'Day. Washington said Bartlett had problems with velocity, so he brought in Feliz. The closer would have come on to face John Jaso one batter later regardless.

Washington also said all six relievers, including Darren Oliver, would be available today. The Rangers will have an extra lefty available too as C.J. Wilson is available if needed.
