Good morning, everyone...
Texas fell to the Astros yesterday, 9-7, despite a 9th inning rally that brought the go-ahead run to the plate for Texas.
Jeff Wilson's game story focuses on Derek Holland, who pitched most of yesterday with an injured finger after Jose Altuve started off the first inning with a line drive that hit Holland's hand.
Evan Grant writes that Holland and the bullpen both struggled in yesterday's loss.
T.R. Sullivan writes that Holland gritted out his start yesterday after taking the line drive off of his hand.
Kevin Sherrington writes that Holland's struggles are turning into a worrisome trend.
Grant says that the Rangers still don't have an answer to their middle relief questions.
T.R. Sullivan writes that Josh Hamilton's start in left field yesterday is part of a determination the Rangers are having to make about whether he's an outfield option in the postseason.
The S-T's notes talk about Josh Hamilton and Chris Gimenez.
