ARLINGTON, Texas -- Manager Ron Washington reserves the right to make alterations to his pitching staff as he sees fit. But hours before Game 3, Washington said he's still committed to starting Tommy Hunter in Game 4 and going with Cliff Lee in Game 5 on full rest.
"We haven't had any discussions with Cliff," Washington said in regards to whether he'd start him on short rest.
Washington and the Rangers could always change their minds if the club loses Game 3. But Lee has never started on short rest in his career.
"Tommy Hunter is scheduled to pitch tomorrow," Washington said. "The only thing I'm thinking about today is Colby Lewis."
