Worth noting

• The Rangers were 16,508 fans away from cracking the 2.5 million attendance mark entering their 58th home game of the season on Sunday. The Rangers drew 2.5 million fans through 62 home games in 1994, the current quickest to 2.5 million.

• Right-hander Koji Uehara threw a bullpen session on Sunday and is expected to throw live batting practice in Frisco on Wednesday. He has been on the disabled list since June 15 with a strained lat.

• Alberto Gonzalez has been assigned to Triple-A Round Rock, where he will report sometime next week. He was designated for assignment on Friday when reliever Mark Lowe was activated off the disabled list.

• Derek Holland held the Tigers scoreless over 7 2/3 innings Saturday after allowing a leadoff homer to Austin Jackson. The last Rangers pitcher to do that was Rich Helling against the Orioles on Sept. 12, 2000, when he tossed eight scoreless after Brady Anderson's leadoff blast.

• By recording a walk-off RBI in his first five career games, Mike Olt joined Bobby Johnson and Monty Fariss as the only Rangers to ever accomplish the feat.

• Each of the Rangers' eight hits in their 2-1 victory over the Tigers on Saturday were singles, marking just the second time this season they have won without an extra-base hit.

• Class A Advanced Myrtle Beach outfielder Josh Richmond is 2-for-6 since coming off the disabled list on Friday after going hitless in his 14 at-bats before going on the DL last month.
