ARLINGTON—Right-hander Yu Darvish was electric across 8 1/3 innings, leading the Rangers to a 2-0 victory over the Yankees at Rangers Ballpark on Tuesday night.
Darvish, helped by a couple of outstanding plays by shortstop Elvis Andrus, outpitched Yankees starter Hiroki Kuroda in only the seventh game in Major League history to be started by two Japanese-born pitchers.
Darvish was really good, and Kuroda was good as well. I can’t wait to read all the awful ‘Yu’ puns in the NY fish wraps tomorrow.
