Rangers Vs. Indians: Derek Holland Goes For Third Straight Win In Rubber Match

The 2012 season hasn't been kind to Derek Holland, but he's turned it around of late, winning his last two starts. The Texas Rangers have gotten wins in his last four starts, and they hope to keep that momentum going in order to win the three-game weekend series against the Cleveland Indians.

The Rangers and Indians have played two close, low-scoring games — just the type of games we're used to seeing at Progressive Field, the ninth-best park for pitchers in the majors — and Sunday's matchup should be no different. Holland's on a hot streak and the Indians' starter, Zach McAllister, has a 3.82 season ERA.

The Rangers would love to come away from this game with a win, with the Athletics simply not going away in the playoff hunt. The Rangers have a three-game lead on their foes from the bay, but there's no hotter team in the league than the A's, winners of their last eight.
