Less than 24 hours after he left Yu Darvish in the game to pitch 130 pitches, the Rangers manager Ron Washington joined 105.3 The Fan’s Ben & Skin to recap the game and give us some insight into his process.
Roy’s goal was to compare the epic pitching duel of Yu Darvish and Justin Verlander to other well-known match-ups.
Geovany Soto knocked out the Detroit ace with a three-run homer that capped a seven-run inning as the Rangers earned a 10-4 victory against the Tigers on Thursday night.
The hard-throwing right-handers from Detroit and Texas will meet Thursday night in a billing that really hasn’t been matched in Arlington since Nolan Ryan and Roger Clemens faced off at old Arlington Stadium in 1989
It was a scare in the bottom half of the ninth inning, but Rangers Closer Joe Nathan was able to get the Rangers out of the jam. Adrian Beltre, Nelson Cruz and Lance Berkman all homered to back up another solid outing by Yu Darvish, and the Texas Rangers held on for an 8-7 win over the Houston Astros on Saturday night.
Yu Darvish struck out 14 and Adrian Beltre hit an RBI single with two outs in the ninth inning as the Texas Rangers beat Boston 4-3 Sunday to complete a three-game sweep.
Texas has gotten strong work from fill-in starters Nick Tepesch and Justin Grimm so far, but Darvish is the glue that holds the team’s rotation together.
Texas scored six times in the sixth inning to help Yu Darvish overcome a shaky start and earn his fifth April win, and the Rangers beat the White Sox 10-6 on Tuesday night.
Even when the Rangers drop an 11-spot hammer on the Angels, the Rangers know where their Texas toast is buttered: “Pitching, pitching, pitching.”
Yu Darvish struck out 10 batters while allowing three hits over seven innings, and the Rangers had their biggest inning of the season in a 7-0 win over the Mariners on Friday night.
Yu Darvish says he’s ready to pitch again after coming within one out of a perfect game in his season debut.
The day the Dallas Stars, Dallas Mavericks and Texas Rangers each absorbed excruciating losses will forever be remembered in Dallas-Fort Worth sports as Terrible Tuesday.
