Washington clears air with Oswalt


BOSTON — Texas manager Ron Washington says he talked with Roy Oswalt about the pitcher's decision not to throw a third inning in a game last weekend and the two have cleared up any differences.

Oswalt told Washington after throwing 30 pitches in the seventh and eighth innings on Sunday that he couldn't continue in the Rangers' 7-6, 10-inning loss in Kansas City.

Washington said Tuesday the two have "cleared the air." He also said no one in the rotation would be pushed back.

Oswalt had a 6.49 ERA in six starts before he was sent to the bullpen when Texas acquired Ryan Dempster from the Chicago Cubs on July 31.

Dempster made his second start for the Rangers against the Red Sox on Tuesday.
