19-17 - One out away: Yu Darvish goes 8 2/3 hitless in Rangers win

Yu Darvish was one out away from the sixth no-hitter in Texas Rangers history tonight against the Boston Red Sox. Then Big Papi happened

Welcome to the Marwin Gonzalez shit list, Papi. Yu Darvish is a marvelous, special pitcher. Tonight, Yu Darvish was virtually untouchable. For 8 2/3 innings, the Boston Red Sox did not collect a hit. Once again, Yu Darvish allowed a hit with two outs with a no-hitter on the line.

It's easy to feel disappointed but we should remember that we get to watch Yu Darvish every five days.

Player of the Game: Elvis Andrus had a nic...who am I kidding? Yu Darvish is the reason we do this sports thing. I can't feel too upset with getting to watch greatness even if it wasn't history-making tonight.
