Worth noting

• Former Mariners pitcher Hector Noesi gave up seven runs in one inning on Sunday in the Rangers' 16-2 loss to the White Sox, which was one shy of the Rangers' all-time record for most runs allowed in one frame by a pitcher. Noesi signed with Texas on April 12 after being designated for assignment by Seattle. The Mariners' record for runs in one inning by a pitcher is nine, set by Freddy Garcia in a game in 2003 and Jose Mesa in a game in 2000.

• Heading into Monday's first game of a six-game homestand, the Mariners had played the fewest home games in the Majors at five. The Braves, Cardinals and Blue Jays all had played six home games going into Monday's action.
