Lineups: Rangers seek split in Oakland

The Rangers try to salvage a split of a four-game series against the A's in Oakland. They'll send Yu Darvish to the mound against former Rangers pitcher Brandon McCarthy. The game starts at 2:37 p.m. and will be broadcast on ESPN 103.3 FM, 1540 AM and FSSW.

Texas is coming off its first shutout of the season and has scored two runs or less in four of the last six games, but manager Ron Washington went with his standard lineup.

"I can't shake that lineup up. I've just got to wait on it," he said. "They are the ones we've got to ride. I just saddle it up and jump on their back and ride it. Sometimes, they get some mud and are going to run in place. Sometimes, they are going to find dry track and we are going to run away, but we've got to wait and keep pushing them out there."
