Holland’s Opus: Rangers lefty pitches Texas to win
That’s big for Holland against right-handed hitters. He froze David Freese in the second inning with a pitch that looked a touch inside.
Game 4 is under way.
Hamilton gave Texas a 1-0 lead with an RBI double off Jackson in the bottom of the inning. Elvis Andrus scored easily from first on a ball into the right-field corner. David Murphy flied out with the bases loaded to end the inning.
Former President George W. Bush threw out the ceremonial first pitch to Ryan from the slope of the mound. The ball tailed a bit and glanced off the glove of a kneeling Ryan, the Hall of Fame pitcher who is now the Rangers‘ president and part-owner.
Fox showed an interesting exchange in the dugout before the game. Washington gave Holland a face-to-face pep talk, putting his hands on the pitcher’s shoulders before giving Holland a little slap on the cheek.
Holland was nodding, taking in every word of advice. But it certainly was unusual. Rarely do you see a starting pitcher engaged in that sort of a discussion moments before taking the mound _ even in October. Most of the time, suggestions or pep talks take place long before that.
Fox showed video of Pujols‘ first swing during batting practice. He slipped awkwardly in the batter’s box and nearly fell down, but wasn’t hurt.
Wonder if Pujols will get much to hit tonight _ or during the rest of the World Series, for that matter.
