Ron Washington isn’t going to tell Colby Lewis not to swing the bat tonight.

Washington is only going to inform the veteran right-hander who underwent hip-resurfacing surgery to avoid sliding and going all-out on the base paths. Washington hopes Lewis is only needed to drop down sacrifice bunts, but said Lewis will be allowed to swing away if the situation presents itself.

Lewis is making his 24th appearance (16th start) in interleague play and is 5 for 20 (.250) with a double and four RBIs at the plate.

On to the lineups:

Texas -- 1. Shin-Soo Choo, lf; 2. Elvis Andrus, ss; 3. Mitch Moreland, 1b; 4. Adrian Beltre, 3b; 5. Alex Rios, rf; 6. Chris Gimenez, c; 7. Leonys Martin, cf; 8. Rougned Odor, 2b; 9. Colby Lewis, p.

Washington -- 1. Denard Span, cf; 2. Anthony Rendon, 3b; 3. Jayson Werth, rf; 4. Adam LaRoche, 1b; 5. Wilson Ramos, c; 6. Ian Desmond, ss; 7. Nate McLouth, lf; 8. Danny Espinosa, 2b; 9. Stephen Strasburg, p.
