Darvish on last play: That was impossible to catch.
8 2/3 innings...disappointed Yu didn't get the perfect game but what a great performance!
Sure Astros are offensively challenged, but Yu was just plain filthy. Fully acclimated and ready for next level. Breakout year ahead.— Chuck Greenberg (@chuckgreenberg) April 3, 2013
Darvish exited immediately after allowing his only hit, forced to settle for the consolation prize of getting the Rangers their first victory of the 2013 season.
Darvish said he didn't know he was tossing a perfect game until his teammates stopped talking to him in the dugout between innings. After being pulled by manager Ron Washington, Darvish tipped his hat to the Houston crowd and was greeted by his teammates at the steps of the Rangers dugout.
"I think my teammates were more disappointed than I was," Darvish said.
