Yankees Vs. Rangers: Derek Holland Takes On Bartolo Colon, Yankees

New York Yankees (18-12) at Texas Rangers (17-16)
Probable Starting Pitchers: Bartolo Colon (2-1, 3.00 ERA), Derek Holland (3-1, 4.66 ERA)

Derek Holland looks to get the Texas Rangers back on track on Saturday night as the Rangers play host to Bartolo Colon and the New York Yankees. Texas has lost seven of their last nine games, including dropping the series opener last night to New York. 

Holland will take the mound for Texas, looking to improve on his 3-1 record. Holland has received two consecutive no decisions, one coming in a five inning start on April 27 against the Blue Jays and the most recent one occurring on May 2 against the Oakland A's, when Holland pitched seven innings and allowed only two runs. 

Texas' offense will look to wake up from their recent slump tonight as well. This week in six games thus far, Texas has scored only 21 runs - good for 3.5 runs per game. 

The suddenly born-again Bartolo Colon will look to keep Texas' bats quiet. Colon has pitched astonishingly well for New York so far this year, striking out 33 batters in 33 innings to go along with a 3.00 ERA and 1.09 WHIP.

First pitch is scheduled for 8:05 p.m. EDT, 7:05 p.m. CDT.
