Worth noting

• Michael Young and Beltre played in their 155th game on Tuesday night. Nelson Cruz, Elvis Andrus and Ian Kinsler have already played that many. The Rangers are only the 11th team since 1969 to have at least five players appear in 155 games or more, and it's a first for the club.

• Rangers pitcher Yu Darvish is one of three finalists for American League Rookie of the Year in the Players Choice Awards. He is up against Athletics outfielder Yoenis Cespedes and Angels outfielder Mike Trout.

• Young is a finalist for the Marvin Miller Man of the Year Award, along with Braves third baseman Chipper Jones and White Sox first baseman Paul Konerko.

• Rangers reliever Koji Uehara had retired 25 straight hitters before Brandon Moss singled off him in the eighth inning on Monday. Uehara had gone nine straight games without allowing a baserunner, the longest such streak in club history.

• Young and Mike Napoli both hit home runs on Monday, giving the Rangers 200 for the season. It's the 11th time in club history they have reached that benchmark. Going into Tuesday's game, the Rangers ranked fourth in the AL in home runs.

• Young has hit seven of his eight home runs on the road. His only home run in Arlington was on April 11.
