A's come up short, lose 4-3 to Rangers

The A's can't capitalize on a swath of baserunners and lose the first of three against the Rangers. The good news is that the A's apparently still own Yu Darvish. The ace who had dominated in his previous three starts looked positively pedestrian against the A's bats. The A's tagged him for three runs in the second inning on a Brandon Moss solo shot and a base hit by Coco Crisp that scored Josh Reddick and Eric Sogard. However, the A's were done in by their 1-10 with runners in scoring position and their 11 men left on base. They had 11 baserunners against Darvish in the first four innings...

Extra Bases: Darvish's Oakland nightmare

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Yu Darvish will have to deal not only with the American League West-leading Oakland A's in Monday’s 9:05 p.m. opener of a six-game road trip. He’ll also be pitching in his most uncomfortable statistical setting. In two career starts at Overstock.com Coliseum, Darvish is 0-2 with a 9.58 ERA. In 10.1 innings, he has walked 12 and allowed 11 hits, including three home runs. "Oakland has put some big innings on him," Rangers manager Ron Washington said.
