• The Rangers' three triples were one short of the club set on July 26, 1973, against the Angels. The opposing starting pitcher was Nolan Ryan, who gave up triples to Vic Harris and Larry Biittner. Reliever Steve Barber gave up the other pair to Alex Johnson and Jim Spencer.
• Rangers pitchers struck out 13 batters on Opening Day and 15 more on Tuesday night. That's the most by a Major League team in the first two games of the season. They join the 2001 Diamondbacks as the first team to strike out at least 13 in the first two games.
