Worth noting

• This is the first time the Rangers have had two rain-shortened games in one season since 1992. The Rangers had two that year as well and lost both.

• Rangers relievers, going into Tuesday, have gone 44 consecutive games without a relief victory. That's the longest such streak for them since 1984. They haven't had a relief victory since back-to-back wins by Shawn Tolleson and Neal Cotts on June 13-14.

Elvis Andrus has four hitting streaks of 10 or more games this season. He is the only Major League player to have done that this year.
