10/10/2010

ARLINGTON, Texas -- After giving up a two-run homer to Evan Longoria in the fifth inning, Texas Rangers reliever Derek Holland has shut down the Tampa Bay Rays lineup. He's helped to keep the Rangers in it as they come up to bat in the bottom of the eighth trailing, 5-2.

Mitch Moreland knocked in the second run in the bottom of the sixth, but the Rangers' heart of the lineup, Michael Young, Josh Hamilton and Vladimir Guerrero went down in order in the seventh.

Tampa Bay has brought in Joaquin Benoit to face Nelson Cruz, Ian Kinsler and David Murphy.
