Darvish Twirls Gem In Rangers Win Over Mariners

Updated:

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Yu Darvish struck out 10 while allowing only three hits over seven innings for Texas, and the Rangers had their biggest inning of the season in a 7-0 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Friday night.
 
In his 33rd career start in the major leagues, Darvish (3-1) had his 10th career 10-strikeout game.
 
Jeff Baker put Texas up 1-0 with a two-out solo homer in the second off Joe Saunders (1-2). The Rangers added a six-run fifth, scoring twice as many runs as they had in any inning this year. The seven runs overall matched their season high.
 
The Mariners had 13 strikeouts overall, and have 44 their last three games. They had 19 strikeouts Wednesday against Detroit, and followed with 12 more on Thursday.
 
Saunders won the AL wild-card game there last October but is 0-7 with a 9.91 ERA in seven career regular-season starts at Texas.
