• Left-handed reliever Pedro Figueroa had his best outing as a Ranger, needing 13 pitches to cruise through the ninth inning and eventually get his first career win after Martin's walk-off hit.

"He finally started attacking," Washington said. "He threw to contact last night. With that, he sees it's not that tough to do. … Sometimes subconsciously, not knowing it, he tries to take stuff off of his velocity to throw strikes, and I don't want him to do that. I want him to let it go."
