Worth noting

• Third baseman Adrian Beltre was in the lineup for a second straight day after missing Friday's series opener with gastrointestinal issues. Asked about how his stomach was feeling before Sunday's game, Beltre said, "It's hanging in there."

• When Nelson Cruz doubled in the second inning Saturday, it got him to 40 doubles for the season and gave the Rangers two 40-doubles hitters, Cruz and Ian Kinsler. No other team in the big leagues has two players with 40 or more doubles.

• Every strikeout for Rangers pitchers the rest of the season will set a new club record. Texas came into Sunday with a collective total of 1,181 strikeouts for the season, matching the club record set in 2010. Ranger starters have struck out 797, one shy of the team record for strikeouts by starters set in 2011.
