• Aaron Harang threw before Sunday's game and everything went well, so Wedge said he believes everything is OK heading for Harang's next scheduled start Tuesday in Anaheim. Harang was scratched Thursday due to lower back stiffness.
• When Raul Ibanez and Smoak hit back-to-back, two-out home runs in the ninth inning Saturday against the Indians, it was the first time in club history that had occurred to tie a game in the ninth inning or later. The last Major League team to pull it off was the Braves against the Phillies on April 20, 2010, when Troy Glaus and Jason Heyward homered back-to-back off Ryan Madson in the ninth inning, and the Braves won in the 10th.
• Wedge said he looked at tape of the game-ending play at the plate on Saturday and felt catcher Jesus Montero could have kept his foot on the plate, but pulled off early as the throw from Brendan Ryan arrived.
"You're not going to turn two on that, so you just need to keep the foot planted," Wedge said. "I don't think he needed to go out and get it. He just released off the plate too early."
• Franklin Gutierrez went 1-for-4 with an RBI and played right field the whole game Saturday as Triple-A Tacoma beat Memphis, 4-3. Gutierrez is hitting .250 (3-for-12) through his first three rehab games as he returns from a strained hamstring.
• Jeremy Bonderman allowed three runs and six hits in six innings Saturday with two walks and three strikeouts, but didn't get the decision for Tacoma. Bonderman is 2-3 with a 3.79 ERA in nine starts.
