Astros finally figure out Darvish, sweep Rangers into last place in AL West

It would have been a joke a year ago, the idea of the Astros sweeping the Rangers for the first time in a decade. Rangers ace Yu Darvish wouldn’t lose to the ‘Stros in the third game of the series, at home, after his team lost the first two. No chance he’d drop a game that would put the Astros ahead of the Rangers in mid-July, even if by one percentage point. All of it’s...

Darvish not keen on pitching in All-Star Game

ARLINGTON, Texas -- The July 15 All-Star Game American League roster may have Yu Darvish's name on it but that doesn't mean he'll be playing in the game.      If the Texas rotation holds form, Darvish would be slated to pitch July 13 against the Los Angeles Angels.      He has no desire to pitch an inning in Minnesota two days later.
