Darvish dazzles in Rangers 5-0 win over Twins

Posted: Updated:

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Yu Darvish allowed just four hits over eight sharp innings and the Texas Rangers beat Minnesota 5-0 on Saturday, handing the Twins their fifth straight loss.

Darvish (8-4) allowed only one hit and one walk after the second inning in lowering his earned run average to 2.42 and his home ERA to 1.83. With 10 strikeouts, he hit double digits for the fifth in his last eight starts.

Adrian Beltre had three hits for the Rangers and scored Texas' first run, which proved to be all the Rangers needed, in the second inning. Shin-Soo Chin and Leonys Martin added two hits each.

The Twins have lost nine consecutive road games. Phil Hughes (8-4) lost for only the second time in eight road starts this season, allowing all five runs on 11 hits in 7 2-3 innings.
