Mitch Moreland lost a double and an RBI because of a scoring change from the May 24 game in Detroit. It was changed to a two-base error.

• The Rangers had Kangaroo Court on the return flight from Washington on Sunday night, fining players for frivolous and stupid infractions. For example, Luis Sardinas was hit for starting for first base after a ball-three call. Prince Fielder was fined for transgressions even though he is out for the season after undergoing neck surgery. Derek Holland was picked on excessively even though he hasn't pitched all year.
