21-13 - Derek Holland Deals as Rangers Split With Milwaukee

The Dutch seem like wholesome people - Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

Apparently Derek Holland was serious about being good and being serious this season

Ian Kinsler continues to be one of the best players in baseball this season. And, he's been doing it on the road. Tonight, Kinsler was 3-5 with a double, home run, and two runs scored. On the year, Ian's slashing .324/.387/.544.

Derek Holland continues to be one of the best pitchers in baseball this season. And, he's been doing it every time out. Tonight, Holland went 7 innings and allowed a lone run while striking out six and walking none.

Here is a list of pitchers whom have been more valuable than Holland so far this season (by fWAR):

  • Anibal Sanchez
  • Clay Buchholz
  • Justin Verlander
The A's lost tonight. The Angels lost tonight. The Rangers have a lead in the West by 3 1/2 games.
