G73: Holland pitches like a rookie, Rangers lose 7-3

Derek Holland started this game, and pitched the way you’d think a first year starter should. Pretty horrible line. 5.2 innings, thirteen hits, one walk, seven runs allowed (six earned). The only thing really good was the fact that he struck out eight guys in his time out there. But he was hit around pretty good, that was the reason the Rangers lost this game.
Offensively, there wasn’t a ton going on. Rangers managed only six hits. Two doubles and a home run (Chris Davis again). That was about it.
I’ve seen uglier games by the Rangers, but it just felt like it should have been a whole lot worse. The Padres set a season record with sixteen hits in a game. Figures it’d be against us.
