Norris' double made it 10-6. At that point, manager Ron Washington took Frasor out to preserve him for another day. Frasor and Neal Cotts have carried a heavy load as the Rangers' primary setup relievers, but Shawn Tolleson has also been used extensively lately. Tolleson has allowed four runs in 3 1/3 innings in his last five outings.
"I'd like to get to a point where we can back off our bullpen, and our starters can take us deeper into the game," Washington said.
