Texas Rangers Vs. Houston Astros: Saturday Probables, TV Schedule And More

Derek Holland takes the mound for the Texas Rangers, as interleague play continues on Saturday night as the Rangers take on the Houston Astros.

Holland hasn't started since May 10, but that is simply because Ron Washington is aiming to rest his starters throughout the season. Holland owns a 3-2 record to go along with a .227 BAA, 1.20 WHIP and 3.78 ERA. Holland has struck out 40 in 47.2 innings of work.

Josh Hamilton and Texas' offense will face off against Lucas Harrell, who gets the start for the Astros. Harrell is 2-3 on the young season, with a 4.40 ERA and 1.42 WHIP. He's struck out only 22 on the year and has issued 18 walks, so the Rangers should be able to put plenty of balls in play and have a slew of base runners against Harrell.

Televised coverage can be found nationally on FOX -- if you're in the proper market. If not, you will be forced to follow online or listen on the radio. Radio coverage can be found on 103.3 ESPN.
