CLEVELAND -- Yu Darvish has lost his first game as a Major League pitcher. He didn't seem too concerned about it.
"If this was my first loss, I might be emotional," Darvish said. "But in high school and as a professional in Japan, I had experiencing in losing a lot games, so I'm not going to dwell on this."
Manager Ron Washington, going over a 4-2 loss to the Indians on Sunday afternoon at Progressive Field, wasn't too concerned about his starting pitcher either.
"If we could have put up some runs on the board early, it might have been a different situation," Washington said.
The Rangers didn't get those runs early. Instead, their offense continues to struggle in the absence of third baseman Adrian Beltre, and they were shut out for seven innings on Sunday afternoon by Indians starter Ubaldo Jimenez. The Rangers, trailing 4-0, scored two runs in the eighth against Indians reliever Tony Sipp, but that didn't keep them from losing for the sixth time in their last nine games.
