• Washington on Derek Holland, who allowed four runs in 4 2/3 innings against the Tigers on Sunday: "I saw him competing very hard, he just got hit. He was in an attack mode, they just hit him. He was mad, he was really upset. When I came out to get the ball, if he could have thrown it at me, he would have. It would have been a throwdown on the mound."
• Michael Kirkman was charged with a blown save in Sunday's game against the Tigers. It's the first blown save charged to the Rangers bullpen this season. They were the only Major League team without a blown save.
• David Murphy's home run on Sunday was the first by a Rangers No. 2 hitter this season.
