Beltre back at third base for Rangers

ARLINGTON -- Adrian Beltre was back at third base on Sunday after being the designated hitter for two days, as Rangers manager Ron Washington tries to ease him back into the field.

"It's a nice day," Washington said. "So we've got him back out there."

Beltre, who missed five games because of an inflamed left hamstring, played third base in the first game of a doubleheader against Baltimore on Thursday. He had been the DH in six of his last seven games.

Washington said the Rangers' playing surface is in good shape -- Beltre missed time in Toronto last week because of the artificial surface at Rogers Centre -- and the weather was improved Sunday after Friday's rain that forced a two-hour delay.

Beltre went 1-for-4 with two RBIs in the Rangers' 13-6 win on Sunday and is hitting .310 on the season.
