Holland, Rangers Look To Rebound Against Yankees

On Tuesday night, Alexi Ogando suffered his first loss of the season as the New York Yankees routed the Texas Rangers 12-4. With the loss, the Rangers fell to 1-4 on their current road trip. Derek Holland will look to get the Rangers back on track on Wednesday night as he gets the start for Texas.

Holland struck out 10 in seven and a third in his latest effort against the Twins, but did give up four earned runs on eight hits in the no decision. Texas eventually lost the game to Minnesota 5-4. 

Holland's record still stands at 5-1, with a 4.41 ERA and 1.42 WHIP. Holland has struck out 70 in 81.2 innings of work on the season while holding opponents to a .274 batting average.

The Yankees will send Ivan Nova to the mound to take on Texas' offense. Nova's record stands at 5-4 on the season, with a 4.30 ERA and 1.54 WHIP. Nova's BB/SO ratio is quite terrible, with 29 walks against 35 strikeouts in 67 innings. 

First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m. EDT, 6:05 CDT. Televised coverage can be found nationally on ESPN.
