ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington says he hasn’t had any conversations with Cliff Lee about the possibility of the ace left-hander pitching Game 4 on short rest.

When asked about it before Game 3 on Saturday, Washington said Tommy Hunter is pitching Sunday as scheduled against the San Francisco Giants. Lee is scheduled to start Monday night in Game 5, if necessary.
