GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) — Yu Darvish couldn’t command his fastball over three innings for the Texas Rangers in an 8-all tie with the Cleveland Indians. The game Tuesday was called after the 10th.
The Japanese star walked four in his second spring start. He allowed two runs and three hits and struck out three.
Darvish limited the trouble by getting Shin-Soo Choo to ground into a bases-loaded double play. Texas catcher Yorvit Torrealba helped Darvish by throwing out two would-be basestealers.
In Darvish’s debut, he pitched two scoreless innings against San Diego.
