HOUSTON (CBSDFW.COM/AP) – It was a scare in the bottom half of the ninth inning, but Rangers Closer Joe Nathan was able to get the Rangers out of the jam.
Adrian Beltre, Nelson Cruz and Lance Berkman all homered to back up another solid outing by Yu Darvish, and the Texas Rangers held on for an 8-7 win over the Houston Astros on Saturday night.
Darvish (6-1) yielded three hits and three runs in seven innings. In his previous outing against the Astros, he came within one out of pitching a perfect game at Houston on April 2.
