Astros finally beat the Rangers 3-1, Darvish early exit

Jose Altuve hit a tiebreaking two-run double in the seventh inning and the Houston Astros finally beat the Rangers, 3-1 on Wednesday night in a game Texas starter Yu Darvish exited earlier than expected.

Darvish, in only his third start for the Rangers since Tommy John surgery in March 2015, left after feeling tightness in his right shoulder during the fifth inning. He was shaking his arm after throwing a 63 mph breaking pitch to strike out George Springer but faced two more batters to finish the inning.

Houston had lost its first eight games this season against its AL West and instate rival. The Astros had also lost 12 straight in Arlington, matching their club record for longest road losing streak against one opponent.

Doug Fister (6-3) got his fifth straight win over his last eight starts -- all Astros victories. The right-hander had five strikeouts while allowing one run over six innings.
