Texas left-hander Derek Holland declined to comment on the umpiring in today's game and second baseman Ian Kinsler wouldn't blame the umpires either. All Kinsler would say was that he would have liked to have had the opportunities the Rangers feel like they lost in the 8-5 game.
As for the notes. ...
The Rangers are 12-12 in June.
The four unearned runs allowed by the Rangers are one short of their season high.
The seven runs allowed by Holland are the most in a quality start since Minnesota's Nick Blackburn allowed seven vs. the Rangers May 21, 2008.
Holland's start was just the ninth quality start in team history in which a pitcher has allowed at least seven runs.
Michael Young is hitting .404 in his 12-game hitting streak. He has four homers and 13 RBIs in that stretch.
The Mets have been at .500 five times this season but haven't been over .500 since April 6.
Cleburne native and UTA ex Dillon Gee is 8-1 and has the best winning percentage in the majors.
