Yu Darvish has been exactly what the Texas Rangers expected he'd become - a dominant force at the top of the rotation, and reason enough to let C.J. Wilson go to the Angels - so far this year. Darvish is 5-1 and the first Ranger to win five of the first seven starts in a season. Darvish threw just under six innings and allowed only three runs in his last outing, a 10-3 win over the Angels. Against Oakland, he'll face a streaking team that's gone 8-5 and improved their hitting as of late.
