After his Jersey concert-going experience went awry, the Rangers pitcher actually pulled things together quite nicely in New York City.
Mainly, he owned the Yankees on Thursday, pitching a two-hit shutout. He needed only 92 pitches to do it. That's how many Tim Lincecum threw in 5 1/3 innings Wednesday against the Dodgers. To make things even more impressive: Holland was 0-5 with an 8.85 ERA lifetime against the Yankees going into Thursday's game.
It was enough ownage of the Yanks to make Joe Girardi throw in the towel. (H/N: Mike Axisa on the GIF) It was also enough of a big-stage performance to get Eye on Baseball talking about Holland's "breakout season."
Well done, Derek Holland. Go get yourself a Red Robin milkshake.
