It was all Yu Tuesday night at Rangers Ballpark against the Tampa Bay Rays. Rangers starter Yu Darvish pitched seven shutout innings and struck out 10 to pick up his 13th win of the season. The Rangers offense in their 1-0 win came on a Ian Kinsler solo home run in the 4th inning.

Rays starter James Shields almost matched Darvish in effectiveness. He gave up the one run in seven innings of work.

Tampa Bay had more opportunities to score as they had seven hits in the game.  However, they missed every opportunity they had to get runners across the plate.

The Rays are now 1.5 games behind the Orioles and Athletics in the AL Wild Card race. In addition, they fell to five games behind the AL East-leading Yankees.

Meanwhile, the Rangers maintain their lead in the AL West and the best record in the American League.
