Jose Bautista touched him for a two-run shot in the third, and Edwin Encarnacion added another solo blast in the sixth.

Despite the rough outing, Holland was able to give the Rangers 96 pitches, which is a season-high for the veteran southpaw.

Rangers could send Derek Holland and Nick Martinez to bullpen
