Worth noting

• With Scott Feldman going into the rotation, the Rangers are without a true long reliever in their bullpen. Manager Ron Washington said that's not a concern right now, but Yoshinori Tateyama, Robbie Ross and Alexi Ogando are all capable of pitching at least two innings in an outing.

• Mitch Moreland, batting ninth, had both of the extra-base hits for the Rangers on Monday night. He had a double in the third and a home run in the eighth. It's the fifth time the Rangers have had multiple extra-base hits in a game and all came from the ninth spot in the lineup. The others were Ted Kubiak (1972), Jerry Browne (1988), Jeff Kunkel (1989) and Travis Metcalf (2007).

• The Rangers are one of five nominees in the Sports Team of the Year category for the 2012 Sports Business Awards, presented by Street & Smith's SportsBusiness Journal and SportsBusiness Daily. The Rangers join the Boston Bruins (NHL), Dayton Dragons (Minor League Baseball/Midwest League), Sporting Kansas City (MLS) and Stewart-Haas Racing (NASCAR) as the five finalists for the award. The winner will be announced Wednesday in New York.
