Rangers win, A's win, the lead in the A.L. West remains 3 games. The Orioles and Yankees both lost, meanwhile, while the Rays and Angels both won, increasing the chances of a huge Wild Card pileup at season's end.

Jeff Wilson's game story talks about Yu Darvish being dominant once again, in a night where he passed the 200 strike out mark for the season, as well as Koji Uehara, who came up big while pitching for the fourth day in a row.

Anthony Andro has quotes from Darvish about yesterday's game, including Darvish saying he feels "nothing" about hitting the 200 strikeout mark.

T.R. Sullivan's game story praises Darvish, who allowed just 2 hits and 2 walks in 7 strong innings.

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

Behind the paywall, Gerry Fraley praises Koji Uehara's big eighth inning.

Durrett writes that Uehara is showing he can be a weapon against lefthanded hitters, and is making a strong push to be on the playoff roster.

The S-T's notes talk about Josh Hamilton getting an injection in his knee on Thursday, Jurickson Profar getting a start against a lefty today, and changes in the minor league coaching staffs.

Sullivan's notes hit on Hamilton, the bullpen, Roy Oswalt continuing to have soreness in his forearm, and Jurickson Profar and Mike Olt being named to the Baseball America first team Minor League All Star Team.
