Swinging A's can't solve Holland

Derek Holland rebounded from his shortest outing ever with a four-hitter for his third career shutout and Josh Hamilton had four RBIs for the Texas Rangers in a 6-0 victory over the Oakland Athletics on Thursday night.
Holland (7-4) struck out seven and walked two while allowing
only four singles. The left-hander had allowed five runs and four
hits while getting only two outs in his previous start Saturday
night against Florida.
Hamilton drove in a run in each of his first four at-bats,
putting Texas ahead to stay with an RBI groundout in the first. The
outfielder, who is set for his fourth consecutive All-Star start
next week, added a run-scoring single in the third before two
sacrifice fly balls after that.
This was the makeup of a May 11 game that was rained out after
Texas built a 7-0 lead through four innings.
Rich Harden (1-1) gave up five runs and eight hits over five
innings in his second start of the season for the Athletics.
