ARLINGTON, Texas -- The finale of this three-game series pits LHP Derek Holland against RHP Dillon Gee. Here’s a quick look at the matchup:

Holland (6-2, 4.69 ERA): This is his 16th appearance of the season and he’ll be pitching with one extra day of rest thanks to Thursday’s off day. … Holland allowed three runs on six hits with three walks and four strikeouts in 7 1/3 innings in a victory over Houston in his last start. … He worked into the eighth inning for the third time in his last four starts and he didn’t allow a batter to reach with two outs until the seventh inning. … He’s left with the Rangers leading or tied in 11 of his 15 starts. … He is 3-0 with a 6.10 ERA and a .302 opponent batting average in seven previous starts at home.

Gee (7-1, 3.21 ERA): The UT-Arlington product took his first loss of the season in his last outing, falling 7-3 to the Oakland A’s at Citi Field on June 21. … Gee had a seven-game winning streak before that loss. … He gave up four earned runs in four innings with a career-high six walks. … That was his only start in interleague play. ..He has never faced the Rangers.

Hitters: No batter from Texas has ever faced Gee. … Two current Mets have seen Holland: Scott Hairston (0-for-6) and Jason Bay (2-for-6, HR, 3 RBIs).
