ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Yu Darvish struck out seven in five strong innings in his first start in the majors in almost 22 months, and the Texas Rangers beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 5-2 Saturday night. The Japanese right-hander allowed three singles with a walk in his return from last year's Tommy John surgery, ending Pittsburgh's five-game winning streak. The "Yuuu" calls from a sellout crowd in Arlington started early for Darvish, who last pitched in the big leagues on August 9th, 2014.
