Worth noting

• Pitcher Brad Mills was activated off the disabled list on Thursday night at Round Rock and pitched two scoreless innings in relief against Reno. Pitcher Nick McBride was transferred from Round Rock to Double-A Frisco.

• Ross Wolf was the first starting pitcher used by the Rangers this season who is at least 30 years old. The Rangers were the last American League team to use a thirty-something starting pitcher this year.

• Rangers pitchers entered Friday's game having allowed just one run in each of their last two games. They have allowed one run or fewer in 12 games, most by an AL staff so far this season.

• Adrian Beltre hit his 10th home run on Wednesday. Nelson Cruz has 11 and Moreland has 10. The Rangers and the Blue Jays are the only two teams with three players with at least 10 home runs. There are 14 teams that don't have one player with at least that many.
