11-13 — Bad strike zone doesn’t faze Yu

Yu Darvish had a gritty six inning outing and Carlos Gomez had a cycle in the Rangers’ win

MLB: Los Angeles Angels at Texas Rangers Ray Carlin-USA TODAY Sports

Well, this was a maddening game early on, as Yu Darvish was getting squeezed, including on what should have been a strike three to Mike Trout that was followed up by a run scoring double.

But all’s well that ends well, as Yu threw six quality innings, the Rangers put runs on the board with the help of a Carlos Gomez cycle, and the Rangers evened up the series at one.

goET does a player of the game, right? I need to do one...so yeah, we’ll pick Carlos Gomez, who had his second career cycle, getting the final leg — a home run — on a two run shot that he bat-flipped.
