Worth noting

• Adrian Beltre (abdominal pain) and Josh Hamilton (vision issues) were not in the Rangers' lineup for the middle game of the series, and their availability for Thursday's series finale is not known.

Hamilton is hitting .267 against the Angels, with four homers and 11 RBIs in 60 at-bats.

• Craig Gentry got the start in center field on Wednesday night against former Rangers starter C.J. Wilson. Gentry is hitting .526 against the Angels this season in 19 at-bats. First baseman Mitch Moreland is batting .375 against the Halos, and David Murphy is a .351 hitter against their staff. Also flourishing vs. the Angels is Elvis Andrus, hitting .339. Napoli leads the parade with his .463 average in 41 at-bats, including four homers and nine RBIs.
