• The Rangers entered Wednesday having lost four in a row, which ties for their longest losing streak of the season.
• Texas entered Wednesday's homestand finale 15-19 at Globe Life Park, good for a .441 home record. That's the third-lowest mark in the American League.
• Exactly 24 years ago to the day Wednesday, Nolan Ryan pitched his sixth career no-hitter. It was a 5-0 win against Oakland. Ryan became the first pitcher to throw a no-hitter with three different teams, and in three different decades.
