Darvish just misses on a no-hitter

HOUSTON (AP) — Yu Darvish was nearly perfect against the Astros once again, taking a no-hit bid into the eighth inning and striking out a career-high 15 to lead the Texas Rangers past Houston 2-1 Monday for their eighth straight win.

Darvish dominated the Astros until Carlos Corporan homered with one out in the eighth inning.

Until the homer, Houston’s lone runner came when rookie Jonathan Villar drew a two-out walk in the sixth on a full-count pitch.

In early April, Darvish (12-5) was one out away from a perfect game at Minute Maid Park before Marwin Gonzalez singled between his legs.
