Texas goes for the sweep today against Brandon McCarthy and the A's...

Jeff Wilson's game story talks about Yu Darvish and his impressive 7.2 inning, 1 run outing yesterday.

Anthony Andro writes in his game story that Darvish is making a case for being the best starting pitcher on the team.

Christian Corona's game story at the Rangers' website has praise for Darvish's outing.

Gerry Fraley has his observations from yesterday's game at the DMN website.

Richard Durrett has his Rapid Reaction at the ESPN Dallas blog.

Behind the paywall, Fraley talks about Darvish's rapid progress.

Durrett has a story about Darvish's outing yesterday, and how he changed his approach against the A's compared to what he's done earlier in the year.

T.R. Sullivan writes that this could be the last year of the "Silver Boot," with the Astros moving to the A.L. West next year, and the people who really cared about the Silver Boot -- Tom Hicks and Drayton McLane -- no longer involved with the teams.

Randy Galloway has a column on Darvish.

Sullivan's notes have quotes from Joe Nathan about pitcher throwing errors, days off for Josh Hamilton, Ian Kinsler, and Michael Young, Brandon Snyder's playing time, and the exciting news that Brad Hawpe's elbow has improved to the point he could play the outfield in the majors.

Wilson's notes hit on Young's day off, the wait on a decision on Jairo Beras, and Matt Harrison's goal for today.
