"I beat myself," Holland said. "I had those guys down, I was doing my job and I let it slip up. Too many walks. It was a disappointing game. I still feel everything is fine. I felt I had one of my best games stuff-wise. I thought I had great command. Then that one inning I started falling behind and started walking people. I got away with it one inning, but the next inning it got away from me. I just beat myself; that was the disappointing thing."
Holland's next start is scheduled for Saturday against the Twins in the third game of a four-game series. Nick Tepesch will open the set on Thursday night. He threw 45 pitches in a bullpen session on Monday without any problems and should be ready on Thursday. He left Saturday's start in the second inning after getting hit in the right arm with a line drive, but that is no longer a concern.
