ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton is returning to Texas for further examination of a sinus problem that has forced him to miss two straight games.

Fellow Texas slugger Adrian Beltre was back in the lineup for the AL West leaders on Thursday night against the Angels. Both players missed Wednesday's game with ailments.

Hamilton leads the majors with 42 homers. He left Tuesday's series opener in the fourth inning with a recurring sinus problem that makes it tough for him to breathe.

Beltre sat out one game with abdominal discomfort and wasn't in the Rangers' initial lineup Thursday, but talked his way into the cleanup spot as a designated hitter after batting practice.

The Rangers' road trip concludes with three weekend games in Seattle.
