Cody Eppley's first major-league victory could end up costing him when the Rangers return from the road trip. Eppley allowed a homer which tied the game and denied Derek Holland the victory. That's the same Holland who will be Eppley's landlord when the Rangers come back from their West Coast swing.
"I didn't want to snake a win from Holland," Eppley said. "We'll have to discuss some of the ground rules for his apartment. We'll have to figure it out."
Holland joked that he was going to take away the egg crate on Eppley's inflatable bed or up his rent.
While Eppley didn't want to deny Holland a victory, he's still proud of his first big-league win.
"To be able to accomplish something like this it was always a dream growing up to win a major league game," said Eppley, who allowed one run on one hit in his two innings. "To actually be able to accomplish it is awesome."
