Holland Ks 11 for Texas in 6-0 win over O's for 3-game sweep

Derek Holland struck out every Baltimore batter while throwing a three-hitter for his eighth career shutout, leading the Texas Rangers over the Orioles 6-0 Sunday to complete a three-game sweep.

Holland (2-1), in his third start since coming off the disabled list, matched a career high with 11 strikeouts. He walked none and hit a batter with a pitch. The left-hander struck out each of the Orioles' nine starters at least once, getting Adam Jones and Chris Davis twice.

The final out was a swing-and-miss by Davis on Holland's 116th pitch, though there was a slight delay in everyone reacting as the bat helicoptered toward the right-field line.

At 68-61, the Rangers are seven games over .500 for the first time since the end of the 2013 season. Their 68 wins are already one more than all of last year - and they still have 33 regular-season games to play.
