• The Rangers scored seven runs on Monday despite going 0-for-10 with runners in scoring position. They are only the sixth team to score at least seven runs and go hitless in at least 10 at-bats with runners in scoring position since 1974.
• Baker was needed for five innings in relief on Monday. He has thrown at least five innings of relief in three outings so far this season. The last Rangers pitcher to do so was Jamie Moyer in 1990. There have been nine relief outings of five-plus innings in the Majors this season, and Baker has three of them. No other reliever has more than one.
