Worth noting

• Maddon congratulated Orioles manager Buck Showalter for clinching a playoff spot by sending him a bottle of wine.

• With wins in the team's final two games, the Rays could become just the fifth team in the modern era to finish 13-1 or better to close out the season. The last team to achieve the feat was the 2007 Rockies, who ended with a 14-1 mark.

• B.J. Upton is two home runs shy of 30. If he can reach the milestone, he would be the first player in team history to have a 30-homer, 30-steal season.
