Rangers Vs. White Sox: Tied At Three In Fifth

A pair of weak hits in the first inning were the only blemish on Derek Holland’s resume through the first two innings, as he struck out three, but struggles in the third allowed the White Sox to take the lead. Holland walked two in the inning, both scoring on a Paul Konerko double, driving up his pitch count and putting the game at 3-1.

An Ian Kinsler triple started the Rangers’ half of the frame, and rather than bunting, Elvis Andrus decided to swing away. It worked, singling in a run, and later tying the game on an Adrian Beltre sac fly. Mike Napoli pitched in an RBI in the second for the game’s first run, and that accounts for the day’s offense.

Since the third, Holland has settled down, with two more strike outs, giving him five against the two walks. He now sits at 93 pitches as the Rangers come up for the bottom of the sixth.

Jake Peavy has looked very hittable, but the Rangers’ plethora of fly balls have died early or gone just foul, keeping the score down.
