Jaso sees same ol' Darvish as Pirates fall to Rangers 5-2

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) John Jaso singled on the second pitch from Yu Darvish in the Japanese right-hander's first start in the majors in almost 22 months.

Pittsburgh's leadoff hitter struck out swinging the next two times, first on an 82 mph slider and then an 89 mph cutter. Same old Darvish, even a little more than a year removed from Tommy John surgery.

Darvish struck out seven in five strong innings, hitting 98 mph in the first inning and sprinkling in breaking pitches as slow as 70 mph, and the Texas Rangers beat the Pirates 5-2 on Saturday night.
