BOSTON (AP) – Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington says he’s put behind him Roy Oswalt’s decision not to pitch a third inning of relief and sees no need to discuss it with the former starter.

Oswalt told Washington after throwing 30 pitches in the seventh and eighth innings on Sunday that he couldn’t continue. The Rangers lost 7-6 in 10 innings at Kansas City.

“Since I’ve been here (if) a player tells me he can’t go, that’s it,” Washington said before Monday night’s game against the Boston Red Sox. “It ends right there and, for me, it ended right there.”

Oswalt had a 6.49 ERA in six starts and went to the bullpen when Texas acquired Ryan Dempster from the Chicago Cubs last Tuesday. Oswalt had thrown 150 pitches in seven days when he told Washington he couldn’t pitch.
