Lineups: Nelson Cruz gets break

By Richard Durrett

ARLINGTON, Texas – Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington said he gave Nelson Cruz a choice between getting an off day in Tampa or at home and Cruz chose Arlington.

Washington stressed it was not because Cruz is 0-for-9 with seven strikeouts against Tuesday’s starter Ubaldo Jimenez. The skipper is trying to give his regulars breaks and it's Cruz's turn.
