Holland did just that, giving up just three runs through seven and one-third innings, and got a very nice ovation from the 41,000 fans at Rangers' Ballpark.
His next start should come this weekend at home against the New York Mets.
Darren O'Day on The Mend
He's scheduled to pitch at Triple-A Round Rock on Wednesday where the Rangers should make a determination on whether he's ready to return to the team or if he needs a little more time.
O'Day went on the 60-day disabled list on April 27th with a torn labrum in his left hip.

According to Mark Hale of the New York Post, the New York Yankees could potentially be a suitor for Wilson when the 2011 season comes to a close.
"And really when you're 40 or 50 years old, you're going to look back on your career and say, 'This is why I did it and I'm cool with it,' Wilson told Hale. "When I was 8 years old, I wanted to win the World Series. When I was 12 years old, I wanted to win the World Series. It's just always going to be that. It's always going to be the deciding factor, one way or the other."
Could Sean Marshall be on the Rangers' Radar?

In 80 games last season (74.2 IP), he finished 7-5 with a 2.65 ERA. This season, through 33 games (33.2 IP), Marshall sports a 3-2 record with a 2.41 ERA.
With the Rangers looking to better their bullpen for the stretch run, Marshall would be one of those guys who would be a solid addition if they could give the Cubs what they are looking for. Though Chicago has no reason to give him up, seeing as he's still yet to turn 29 this year (Aug. 30th), he still has some good years ahead of him.
The left hander signed a 2-year $4.7 million extension with the team and he's slated to earn $3.1 million next season.
