Peralta homer ups Detroit lead to 2-0

ARLINGTON, Texas -- The strike zone is usually the issue for 25-year-old Derek Holland.

So far tonight, the Rangers’ lefty has commanded the zone.

But for the second straight inning, a Tigers right-handed hitter (this time Jhonny Peralta) homered to the opposite field. Peralta picked on a 95 mph fastball with a 1-1 count and sent it an estimated 358 feet.

The Rangers stranded a runner in scoring position with two outs in each of the first two innings against Max Scherzer and trail the Tigers, 2-0, after two innings of the ALCS Game 6.

Texas leads the series 3-2.
