A.J. Pierzynski blocked the plate for the inning-ending out against Urrutia, but the Rangers catcher had a base running gaffe of his own.

Pierzynski was at first after a leadoff single in the second when Andrus blooped a ball into the short center field. Pierzynski stopped about halfway to second when Jones held up his glove like he was about to make the catch. After the ball dropped in front of him, Jones threw to second to force out Pierzynski.

"Man, that play works one in about 200,000 attempts," Jones said. "I've seen other outfielders do it. I've never really done it before, and it randomly worked in a big situation."

Notes: The start of the game and a pregame ceremony for 14-time All-Star catcher Ivan Rodriguez into the Texas Rangers Hall of Fame were delayed 30 minutes by rain. ... Orioles LF Nolan Reimold is scheduled to have surgery next week to correct a spinal fusion procedure. He had his first neck surgery last June, but tests this week showed that his spine never fused properly and has to be fixed. His first surgery was the same procedure that NFL quarterback Peyton Manning had.
