A few minutes after the Rangers had beaten the A’s 10-5 in the first game of a doubleheader that also featured the MLB debut of Joe Palumbo, the Rangers retired Adrian Beltre’s No. 29 before the second game began with Adrian Sampson on the mound looking to build upon a 7 IP, 1 ER outing against the Kansas City Royals in his previous start.
