A left-hander -- a good one, Chris Sale -- is on the mound for Chicago to open a three-game weekend series at Rangers Ballpark. So, manager Ron Washington has loaded the Rangers' lineup with eighth right-handed hitters and Josh Hamilton. Mike Napoli is the designated hitter as Washington rests him for the final two games of the series.
