ARLINGTON, Texas -- Ron Washington meant to sit hot-hitting catcher Geovany Soto Thursday, but he put him in the lineup anyway. Today, the recent acquisition from the Chicago Cubs will take a seat. Luis Martinez will be behind the plate for the Texas Rangers in the second of four games against the Minnesota Twins. Josh Hamilton will assume the DH spot with Craig Gentry getting the start in center field and batting ninth.

Here are tonight's lineups:
