• Right-hander Yu Darvish was fine Sunday morning after dealing with cramping in both legs Saturday, Rangers manager Ron Washington said. Washington said Darvish initially experienced the cramping in the seventh after striking out Dayan Viciedo with runners on the corners for the first out of the inning.
A horde of Rangers staff visited the mound two batters later, when Darvish stumbled after a pitch in the dirt to Alejandro De Aza. Darvish then disclosed the cramping to Washington, but remained in the game until getting De Aza to pop out two pitches later.
Darvish walked slowly off the mound and Washington said the cramping again caught his legs just as he got to the dugout steps. It is considered a non-issue and Darvish expects to make his next start.
• Darvish struck out 11 batters in Saturday's no-decision, his 10th game of at least 10 strikeouts this season. It is the first time a Rangers pitcher has struck out 10 or more batters 10 times in a season since Nolan Ryan (18 in 1989) and the first time a Major League pitcher has hit the mark since 2004 (Randy Johnson, 13, Johan Santana, 12).
