ARLINGTON, Texas -- It's getaway day for the Texas Rangers, who will leave for a weekend series at St. Louis after Thursday's game. But first things first: There's still business to take care of against the AL West-leading Oakland Athletics. Manager Ron Washington, however, is giving DH/1B Lance Berkman and catcher A.J. Pierzynski some rest.
