Worth noting

• Second baseman Ian Kinsler served as the designated hitter for the 11th time this season on Wednesday. Manager Ron Washington said he wanted to get Michael Young on the field after three straight starts at DH. Mike Olt started at first base with Royals left-hander Everett Teaford on the mound.

• The Angels and the Athletics played on Wednesday afternoon, but the Rangers didn't watch the game on TV in the clubhouse. Washington didn't know who was winning when he had his pregame meeting with the media. Said Washington, "We're focused on Kansas City. If we take care of our business, it won't matter what they do. We're only concerned about ourselves."

• The Rangers have been picked off base 11 times this season, the most in the Major Leagues.
