I know, I know, I’m taking the split thing too literally with this picture but I couldn’t help myself.
The last time the Yankees faced Derek Holland on June 27, they were two-hit by the Rangers’ left hander. In his last game against Texas on June 25, Hiroki Kuroda took a no decision after allowing three runs (two earned) on five hits in six and two-third innings. Kuroda is looking for his tenth win of the season.
I’m expecting a pitcher’s duel and with some luck, the Yankees can escape Texas with a win and a split. Of course, now that I’ve written that, it will be a 10-9 game.
Here are the lineups.
