Worth noting

• Washington said Choo, who has been the designated hitter over the first two games of the series, will sit Sunday. Adrian Beltre will get the start at DH for the series finale.

• Beltre moved up in the record books in Friday's series opener in Toronto. The 35-year-old played in his 2,283rd career game at third base, passing Gary Gaetti for third place all time. Brooks Robinson (2,870) and Craig Nettles (2,412) are the only third basemen who have played more games at the hot corner than Beltre.

In addition, Beltre's fifth-inning homer was the 390th of his career, which is the fifth most in Major League history among right-handed-hitting third basemen. Phillies Hall of Famer Mike Schmidt tops the list with 548.

• Arencibia became the eighth Ranger to start at first base this season when he made his Major League debut at the position on Friday. The eight first basemen Texas has started in 2014 is the most ever for the club in a season, surpassing the mark of seven, which the Rangers have reached four times, most recently in 2013.
