• Perez took a no-decision on Friday night despite allowing one run in 5 2/3 innings. It was the 11th time this season that a Rangers pitcher has allowed one or no runs in a start of at least five innings and took a no-decision. That ties for the most in club history.
• Adrian Beltre went into Saturday's game with a team-leading 28 home runs but hadn't gone deep since Aug. 28. Since 1991, Juan Gonzalez's first full season, the Rangers have had just one year when they didn't have at least one player hit 30 home runs. That was in 2007, when Sammy Sosa led with 21.
• Friday's 2-1 loss was the Rangers' sixth straight in one-run games. Six of their last nine losses have been by one run.
