Surging Angels pose tough test for Rangers, Darvish

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Both Yu Darvish and Jesse Chavez are coming off strong starts heading into the second of a three-game series between the Texas Rangers and Los Angeles Angels on Saturday at Globe Life Park.

Darvish (2-2) allowed just two runs in eight innings his last time out in Texas' 5-2 win over the Kansas City Royals. He looked like the Yu Darvish that the Rangers originally paid more than $50 million just to negotiate with before his first major league contract, striking out eight, going deep into the game and keeping his pitch count manageable.

The Royals are currently sitting in fifth place in the American League Central, though. Darvish is 8-2 with a 3.48 ERA in his career against the Angels (13-12), who are two games ahead of the Rangers (10-13) in the AL West.
