ARLINGTON, Texas -- The Rangers reached the three million mark in attendance for the second consecutive season on Thursday. It's the only two times in franchise history they've done so.

The Rangers had a paid attendance of 26,198 for Thursday night's game against the Los Angeles Angels, giving them a season attendance of 3,019,430. The Rangers are the eighth team in the major leagues to reach three million fans this season. The New York Yankees, Detroit Tigers and Angels are the others in the American League.

Michael Taft of Keller was randomly selected when he entered the ballpark Thursday night as the three millionth fan. He received four tickets to the 2014 season opener and gift cards to the Majestic Grand Slam Gift Shop for each family member.

The Rangers have three home games remaining in the regular season.
