Derek Holland is only making his 5th start of the season tonight, as he has spent most of the season on the DL. In his last outing he did not give up any earned runs in a complete game 6-0 win over the Baltimore Orioles. The Rangers are 1-4 in their last 5 road games when Holland has gotten the start. Jared Weaver has been rocked in his last 2 outings giving up a combined 14 earned runs in only 11 innings of work. However, the Angels have won 14 of their last 16 home game against the Rangers with him on the hill and 7 of their last 9 overall.
I have to go with the Rangers in this one with Weaver struggling and Holland coming off a stellar start.
