Derek Holland hasn't had good luck this season.
In what appears to be a turn-the-corner year for the previously inconsistent, high-ceiling left-hander, Holland has pitched well for much of the season but just hasn't seen his teammates come through on their end of the bargain, offering little to no run support.
In Thursday's outing against an albeit awful New York Yankees lineup, the run support was non-existent as Holland did all he could to keep the Rangers in the game but watched his team lose 2-0 to split a four-game set with the Yankees.
Holland pitched 7 1/3 innings and gave up the two runs, throwing just 94 pitches with 70 of them finding the strike zone.
Holland actually saw his already low ERA decrease even further to 3.06 in his 21 starts but he took the loss to fall to 8-6 on the season.
