The Dodgers' Kenta Maeda made a cool $1 million Saturday despite losing to the Pirates. An incentive in his contract, one of many, triggered the bonus after his 15th start. Maeda did pitch well outside of two home runs by Andrew McCutchen. The Dodgers lost 6-1 to Pittsburgh.

Steven Wright allowed three hits with his fastball (Moreland's two-run single, Beltre's RBI single, Andrus' three-run triple), which matches his season-high. He also gave up three hits on his fastball June 10 at Minnesota. Including tonight, he has thrown 263 fastballs (16.2 percent of his pitches) and allowed 15 hits, according to ESPN Stats & Information.

Steven Wright allowed a season-high eight runs, five in the fifth inning. But thanks to errors by Xander Bogaerts and Hanley Ramirez, only three of the runs were earned, leaving his ERA at 2.18, which still leads the American League.

Former knuckleballer Tom Candiotti was one of the first to tell Steven Wright to throw his knuckler when he's ahead or even in counts, his fastball when he's behind. It's a formula that has worked for Wright. There, though, Mitch Moreland pounced on a 2-0 fastball for a two-run single that gave Rangers a 3-1 lead through four innings.

On behalf of the Rangers, Adrian Beltre and Elvis Andrus present David Ortiz with custom cowboy boots with "Papi 34" and a Red Sox logo and a belt with a big, old buckle that undoubtedly would draw the approval of ex-teammates Josh Beckett and John Lackey.

David Ortiz hit the first homer of his career here in Arlington on Sept. 14, 1997, against Texas reliever Julio Santana. The Rangers will honor Ortiz with a pregame ceremony in a few minutes.
