The Rangers wrap up a two-game set against the Milwaukee Brewers on Wednesday night as Derek Holland takes on veteran Kyle Lohse. First pitch at Miller Park is at 7:10 p.m. on FSSW and ESPN Dallas 103.3 FM (1540 AM in Spanish).

Holland (2-2, 2.74): Holland has lasted at least seven innings in five of his six starts this season. … He tossed eight shutout innings against the Boston Red Sox in his last start, striking out nine and throwing 112 pitches, both season highs. … Holland has allowed a .199/.244/.285 slash line to opposing hitters. … Holland has struggled in ten interleague starts, posting a 5.20 ERA and allowing nine home runs in 55 1/3 innings.

Lohse (1-3, 3.16): Lohse struggled in his previous outing, lasting only five innings and giving up a season-high 11 hits and four runs against the St. Louis Cardinals on Friday. … Lohse hasn’t walked more than one batter in any of his six starts this season and has a miniscule 2.1 percent walk rate, which is a vast improvement over his solid career rate of 6.6 percent. … Lohse has a 5.29 ERA in 35 interleague games (31 starts).

Hitters: When Lance Berkman (9-for-31, four home runs, six walks) hits Lohse, he hits him hard. Geovany Soto (6-for-18) has had some success against Lohse as well. … Only four Brewers have faced Holland (Yuniesky Betancourt, Carlos Gomez, Alex Gonzalez and Aramis Ramirez), with Gomez (1-for-3 with a HBP) being the only one to reach base.
