Worth noting

• The Angels requested extra security for Josh Hamilton's wife and family during Friday's game against the Rangers because of what was described as "over-exuberant" fans seated near them. There were no incidents or arrests. The Hamilton family was seated in a private suite on Saturday. There were no available suites for the home opener on Friday so the Hamilton family was in the stands.

• The Rangers went into Saturday's game having not committed an error in their last 30 innings. That stretch lasted for six more innings until third baseman Adrian Beltre committed a fielding error in the seventh.

• Beltre received his 2012 Gold Glove before Saturday's game and catcher A.J. Pierzynski received his 2012 Silver Slugger Award. It was the fourth time Beltre has won the award for defensive excellence and the first for Pierzynski as the top hitting catcher in the league.

"It's awesome," Pierzynski said. "To get it is pretty cool. My son is more excited than I am. He wants to get that bat and swing it around the house."
