Texas starter Jeff Beliveau threw two scoreless innings Friday before rain canceled a spring training game against the Milwaukee Brewers with the Rangers leading 2-0.
Beliveau, who has an outside shot of a spot in the Rangers bullpen, struck out one and allowed two hits and a walk.
''Anytime as a reliever you put up zeroes your confidence builds up time and time again,'' Beliveau said. ''Right now I feel good.''
Brewers starter Tyler Thornburg pitching three innings of no-hit ball, striking out two and walking two. Texas scored the only two runs of the unofficial game in the top of the fourth against Brewers left-hander Tom Gorzelanny.
Lance Berkman and Geovany Soto walked and Brandon Allen made it 1-0 with an RBI single to left. Leonys Martin followed with a single to right before Gorzelanny struck out Mike Olt to end the inning. The game was called in the fourth inning after a 19-minute rain delay and will not be made up.
