Yu Darvish is still one of best pitchers of the 2012 season, but since his last impressive start against Oakland - a 7 2/3 innings, seven strikeout, one-run night - he's struggled a bit, including a loss to Anaheim (three runs and six hits in six innings) in his last start.
The Rangers will look to give Darvish his eighth win going against Brandon McCarthy in final game of the series, who is a four game winning streak with a 2.52 ERA in that span, as well as 20 strikeouts.
