ARLINGTON, Texas—Derek Holland kept control. Geno Atkins Womens Jersey . Mad about walks
that cost him a win last weekend, Holland struck out eight with no bases on ball
Thursday in the Texas Rangers 5-3 win over the Seattle Mariners. “Im not going
to worry too much about a previous game,” Holland said. “My mentality is I want
to be the starter and the closer. I always try to go out there and go as long as
I can.” Michael Young hit a two-run homer and had four RBIs for the Rangers.
Holland (1-0) allowed two runs and five hits in 7 1-3 innings. After two key
walks that helped the Chicago White Sox rally for a 4-3 win in his first start,
Holland (1-0) had a much sharper outing. Following Ichiro Suzukis two-out single
in the first, the only runner he allowed in a span of 14 batters was on a
throwing error by second baseman Ian Kinsler the first error by the Texas
infield this year after 108 clean chances. Holland extended a scoreless streak
by Texas starters to 22 2-3 innings before Alex Liddis RBI single in the sixth.
Kyle Seager added a 438-foot homer into the right-field upper deck in the
seventh, but Holland bounced back with a strikeout of Miguel Olivo and got a
flyout from Casper Wells. Already at 102 pitches after seven innings, Holland
struck out Brendan Ryan starting the eighth, then allowed Chone Figgins double
and was replaced after 115 pitches by Koji Uehara. “When he got into the sixth
inning, he started elevating his pitches,” Rangers manager Ron Washington said.
“He fought through the seventh, and it looked like he might get us three outs in
the eighth but it didnt work out.” Young put Texas ahead with an RBI single in
the first. Then with the Rangers leading 1-0 in the fifth inning for the third
straight game, Young hit an opposite-field homer into the first row in right for
a 3-0 lead against Jason Vargas (1-1). Young added a run-scoring single in the
eighth off Erasmo Ramirez. “All Michael does is hit,” said Washington, who moved
Young up to second in the order from his usual No. 5 spot to give shortstop
Elvis Andrus a day off. “I just happened to have him in the perfect spot hitting
second, and he came through huge for us today.” Kinsler had three hits for
Texas, including a two-out RBI double in the seventh that gave the Rangers a 4-2
cushion with closer Joe Nathan unavailable after pitching on consecutive days.
“We definitely fed off Holland,” Young said. “Everything started to click
offensively.” Mike Adams filled in for Nathan, giving up Olivos two-out RBI
double in the ninth before retiring Michael Saunders on a grounder for his
second save with the Rangers and the fourth of his career. Vargas retired nine
in a row before faltering in the fifth. He allowed four runs and seven hits in 6
2-3 innings with six strikeouts and one walk. “Vargo was really good today,”
Mariners manager Eric Wedge said. “He was up a little bit early, but he found
it. He gave us every opportunity to win.” Seattle finally is headed home two
months and a day after reporting to spring training in Arizona. Upon landing,
the Mariners will have travelled more than 15,000 miles and started their
regular season twice—first in Japan and then Oakland. “Youd be lying if you
said it wasnt wearing on you a little bit,” said Ryan, who was benched for a
game after a rough night in the series opener. “Itll be nice to unpack.” NOTES:
The Rangers Nos. 3-6 hitters combined to go 0 for 14 against Vargas and Ramirez.
Mike Napoli was among them, going 0 for 3 as his average dropped to .077. ...
Nathan entered Thursday as one of two relievers with two losses this season. The
other was Bostons Mark Melancon. Nathan allowed four of the first five runs
surrendered by the Texas bullpen. The only other Rangers reliever to lose twice
within the first six games was Frank Francisco in 2010. He was replaced as
closer by Neftali Feliz, who saved 72 games in Texas back-to-back World Series
seasons. ... Kinsler hit three homers in the Rangers first six games for the
second straight season. Nelson Cruz did it in 2010-11. ... Seattles bullpen has
given up eight homers in eight games after leading the AL with just 32 allowed
last season. ... The Rangers announced Thursday they have sold 2 million
tickets, and they lead the AL with an average of 39,133 fans through eight
games. Dre Kirkpatrick Womens Jersey . President
John Schuerholz announced the moves Friday, a week after the Braves were

had 11 points, 18 rebounds and five blocks, and the 76ers rallied for a 91-87
victory over the New Jersey Nets on Saturday night. BenJarvus Green-Ellis Jersey . The South
African completed a 3-under 69 in the rain-delayed third round, then closed with

ready for its first kickoff until September at the earliest. LOS ANGELES —The
Los Angeles Clippers know they probably wont get away with another inept
performance at the free-throw line in the Western Conference playoffs against
the Memphis Grizzlies. “We just cant let leads go like that, when were up six
with, I think, 40 seconds left,” Nick Young said Sunday. “We had everybody in
here shooting free throws today.” The Clippers missed 17 of 30 free throws and
almost squandered a six-point lead in the final 23 seconds Saturday, beating the
Grizzlies 87-86 only after Rudy Gay missed a 3-pointer just before the buzzer.
Game 4 is Monday night, when the Clippers hope to take a 3-1 series lead.
Chris Paul, who had 24 points and 11 assists, was the only Clippers player to do
well at the line. He made seven of eight, including two with 23 seconds left for
the six-point lead. The Clippers took six more free throws, missing the last
five. Gay hit two 3-pointers to keep the Grizzlies in it. “Some players havent
been in that situation, especially with us being in the playoff atmosphere,”
Young said. “Youve really kind of got like the game in your hands when youre at
the free-throw line. That can be a lot of pressure, with everybody telling you,
We need this shot. We need you to make these free throws. “Weve just got to take
care of home court, really. You shouldnt have that much pressure at home.” Coach
Vinny Del Negro agreed. “The bottom line is youve got to make the free throws,”
he said. “Weve struggled with that perriodically throughout the season. BenJarvus Green-Ellis Youth Jersey. We were
able to overcome it but you have to be very good in a lot of other areas when
you miss that many free throws. “I give the guys a lot of credit for buckling
down in the fourth quarter and getting stops and making plays when we had to. We
gave them some opportunities by missing some free throws. Were going to be
aggressive and get to the line as much as possible and guys are going to have to
step up and make them.” The Grizzles made 30 of 39 free throws. But they went
nearly seven minutes without making a field goal, until Gay buried a 3
