NEW YORK - Derek Holland tamed a team that often tagged him, pitching a two-hitter as the Texas Rangers finished up an impressive road trip by beating the New York Yankees 2-0 Thursday.
Jurickson Profar homered and scored twice, while fellow rookie Engel Beltre got two hits in his first big league start. Texas went home leading the AL West after going 5-1 on its swing to St. Louis and Yankee Stadium.
Holland (6-4) threw his sixth career shutout - it was the lowest-hit shutout by a visiting Rangers pitcher against the Yankees since the Texas franchise moved from Washington for the 1972 season.
