Quote: "I wish we would have played better up to the trading deadline and wouldn't have had to make these moves. But I think you have to put your best foot forward and help the club when you're this close." -- Rangers GM Doug Melvin, who made two trades yesterday.

It's a fact: Devil Rays second baseman Miguel Cairo had 10 assists and two putouts in the game. No major-league second baseman had recorded more than nine assists in a nine-inning game this season before.

Who's not: The Blue Jays have committed nine errors in their past 12 games.

On deck: The Red Sox's Pedro Martinez (14-3) tonight tries to become the AL's second 15-game winner.
