Yu Darvish has been pitching great again this season, but due to the Texas Rangers‘ sudden lack of hitting, most of it has been wasted of late as it seems as if he’ll never earn his eighth win. Since his last win May 16 against the Detroit Tigers, Darvish lost 1-0 to the Oakland Athletics and has gone four consecutive games without getting a decision, including Thursday night’s 3-1 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays. During these five games, Darvish has a 2.08 ERA with 41 strikeouts in 34 2/3 innings, but the Rangers have only given him seven runs to work with—four coming in the same game.
