Rangers' Yu Darvish Struggles Against Mariners, Again

Yu Darvish might have found his kryptonite. Once again, the prized right hander struggled against the Seattle Mariners on Monday night, as the Rangers fell to the Mariners, 6-1.

Darvish needed 96 pitches to even get through four innings of work, and allowed five runs -- four of which were earned. Darvish only allowed four hits, but walked an alarming six batters in four innings while striking out the side.

It appeared that Darvish would dominate out of the gate, as he struck out Dustin Ackley to start the game, but then issued a four-pitch walk to Michael Saunders. Ichiro Suzuki then tripled down the right field line, but Darvish would eventually strike out the side in the first.

Texas' offense, meanwhile, had no answer for Felix Hernandez. Hernandez pitched eight strong innings, allowing just one run on six hits, while walking two and striking out seven.

Mitch Moreland accounted for Texas' only run, as he hit a solo home run in the eighth inning off of Hernandez. Moreland also doubled in the game.
