The Rangers’ updated record on getaway days (the final game of each homestand and the final game of each road series): 3-13.

Michael Young’s updated push to put together a fifth straight 200-hit season: this torrid run he’s been on puts him in a position to hit the mark by simply hitting .299 the rest of the way, getting the same number of at-bats per game that he’s amassed so far.

Outfielder John Mayberry has been promoted to AA. The Rangers’ 2005 first-round pick was leading the California League with 16 home runs but was hitting just .230/.314/.496 for Bakersfield, with 64 strikeouts (third-highest total in the league).

Mayberry replaces outfielder Ben Harrison on the RoughRiders roster. Harrison, who returned to action two weeks ago after missing the season’s first seven weeks following off-season shoulder surgery, was hitting .174/.321/.304 in 23 Frisco at-bats.
