Four batters batted in the inning, and all four at bats featured interesting conclusions. The first at bat was by Matt Holliday, and he was called out on a very questionable strike:
The second at bat was by Lance Berkman, and he drilled a ringing double to right-center field.
The third at bat was by David Freese, and he was called out on a very questionable strike:
And the fourth at bat was by Yadier Molina, who ripped a sharp ground ball back up the middle. Off the bat, one's assumption was that the ball would get through and Berkman would score, but Ian Kinsler ranged way over to his right to not only keep the ball in the infield, but to throw Molina out. Kinsler didn't make a clean or strong through, but Molina's last name is Molina, so Kinsler didn't have to be perfect.
1-0 Texas, three half-innings in. Holland's at 32 pitches, and at least in the early going, he's got a favorable zone.
