Roy Oswalt, who was making his first start since Aug. 23 for the Texas Rangers, left Sunday's game against Tampa Bay after two innings because of soreness in his right elbow. Oswalt allowed four runs on six hits, including homers by B.J. Upton and Jose Molina, in his two innings of work. He left with the Rangers trailing 4-0. Oswalt had been moved to the bullpen, but started Sunday's game so Matt Harrison could get some extra rest. Instead of making his scheduled start on Sunday, Harrison will start Tuesday's game. Oswalt was the losing pitcher in the game won by the Rays 6-0. He's 4-3 with a 6.29 ERA for the season.
