Worth noting

Aaron Poreda's win on Saturday night was the ninth by a Rangers reliever, the most for any team in the American League.

• The Rangers scored 11 runs in the first two games of their series with the Mariners and eight came across without a hit: three bases-loaded walks, three wild pitches and two sacrifice flies.

• The Rangers went into Sunday leading the American League with 14 sacrifice bunts. Leonys Martin had five and Elvis Andrus had three, ranking them first and second among individual players.
