Chien-Ming Wang won for the first time in more than a year, leading the Blue Jays to a 7-2 win and completing a four-game sweep of the Texas Rangers.
Corey Kluber allowed one run over eight innings, and the Indians beat the Rangers 5-2 on Tuesday night to snap an eight-game losing streak and 12-game road losing streak.
While Darvish is still the Texas ace, Holland struck out eight and allowed only one earned run over seven innings to wrap up his undefeated month.
David Murphy put Texas ahead with a three-run home run, and the Rangers spoiled a three-homer game from Miguel Cabrera with an 11-8 victory against the Detroit Tigers on Sunday night.
It was a big day on 105.3 The FAN as Rangers pitcher Derek Holland helped welcome in the boys of Ben & Skin.
Holland allowed one run over seven shaky innings and Texas benefited from two Milwaukee baserunning mistakes to beat the Brewers 4-1 Wednesday night.
Derek Holland pitched seven shutout innings, Adrian Beltre hit a two-run home run, and Craig Gentry made a diving catch in the ninth to preserve the Texas Rangers’ 4-2 win over the Chicago Cubs on Tuesday night at a cold Wrigley Field.
There have been some big changes in the Texas lineup since not winning a game last October, particularly the departure of five-time All-Star and former AL MVP Josh Hamilton, now with the AL West rival Los Angeles Angels.
Team USA manager Joe Torre firmed up his starting pitching for the first round of the World Baseball Classic on Tuesday, slating Derek Holland against Canada.
Will Smith, one of several candidates for the fifth slot in Kansas City’s rotation, outpitched two Texas starters already assured spots as the Royals and Rangers tied 5-all in nine innings Friday in their spring training opener.
Derek Holland is keeping with the proud history of oddball lefties. But the Rangers, presumably in the service of better pitching, have asked Holland to tone down his routine just a bit.
All we got out of Thursday’s announcement of the Team USA roster was a reminder that until further notice, the World Baseball Classic remains a second-rate event.
