Hoping the return of Nelson Cruz and Josh Hamilton can get the offense back on the track it was on to start the season, Washington re-installed Ian Kinsler as the leadoff hitter.

Kinsler had been moved to the No. 3 spot about two weeks ago after struggling as the leadoff man. The move did not produce markedly different results. The Rangers were going to put Hamilton back in the No. 3 spot when he returned, anyway.
