Texas had only six relievers instead of its usual seven for Wednesday's game.

Patton is in his third stint with the Rangers. He has a 0.78 ERA in 22 appearances at Round Rock.

Choice appeared as a defensive replacement Wednesday, going 0 for 1 with a strikeout and also had a two-base error when he misplayed a ball in right field.
