Rangers manager Ron Washington hopes that he found a lineup Saturday that could push the Rangers to their first winning streak of the month. He made no changes in the lineup he posted for Sunday, meaning that Craig Gentry will start for a second straight game. Gentry is 7 for 10 his past two games. "He's been doing a good job," Washington said.
