• Scott Baker went 6 2/3 innings in relief on Thursday night. It's the fourth time he has pitched five or more innings in relief this season, the most by a Major League pitcher since Tom Bolton did it five times for the Red Sox in 1993. Danny Darwin had four such relief appearances for the Rangers in 1980.
