"Scherzer was 13-0 for a reason. He's got great stuff," Holland said. "Today I made pitches when I needed to and I thought my defense did a great job making plays and saving me. It's up there with the big games this year."

Texas starters are only 10-13 since the beginning of June, even after Holland's solid performance.

Detroit's rotation, meanwhile, has been among the best in the game — and Scherzer has certainly contributed his share. He's a big part of the Tigers' efforts to win their third straight division title.

"I believe in my talents and I believe going forward that I'm going to put together other streaks as well," Scherzer said.

NOTES: Ian Kinsler set a Rangers' record with his 162nd career steal, breaking a tie with Bump Wills. ... Detroit's Victor Martinez left the bases loaded with a third-inning strikeout and had his hitting streak snapped at 14 games. ... Tigers ace Justin Verlander (9-6) starts Sunday against Texas LHP Martin Perez (3-1).
