Recap: Texas vs. Toronto

Arlington, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - Drew Hutchison outdueled Yu Darvish as the Toronto Blue Jays defeated the Texas Rangers, 2-0, on Friday in the opener of a three-game set.

Hutchison (2-3) tossed the first complete game in his brief Major League career, allowing three hits and a walk with six strikeouts.

Darvish (3-2), meanwhile, picked up right where he left off in his previous outing, but was the tough-luck loser after going eight innings, surrendering two runs on five hits and three walks with 11 strikeouts.

Darvish, who hadn't allowed a hit through four innings against Toronto, had a perfect game through 6 2/3 innings last Friday against Boston before a controversial play was ruled an error. David Ortiz skied a pop-up into shallow right field where Alex Rios and Rougned Odor allowed the ball to drop.

Ortiz, who later broke up the potential no-hitter with a single with two outs in the ninth, appealed the error ruling, and Major League Baseball awarded him with a hit on the play earlier this week.

The Blue Jays opened the scoring in the eighth off Darvish. Erik Kratz and Anthony Gose each reached base with bunt singles to open the inning.

Jose Reyes then drove a pitch to the warning track in right that enabled Kratz to tag up and move to third. Melky Cabrera pulled a 1-1 pitch over Prince Fielder's head at first into the right-field corner that pushed Kratz and Gose across for a 2-0 lead.

After intentionally walking Jose Bautista to put runners at the corners, Edwin Encarnacion grounded into a inning-ending 5-4-3 double play.

Texas' only scoring threat came in the sixth inning when Leonys Martin walked to lead off the frame.

Odor moved him over with a bunt and Martin then scampered over to third on a flyout by Shin-Soo Choo. Elvis Andrus grounded out as Hutchison escaped the inning unscathed.

Game Notes

Texas has lost three straight and five of its last six ... Toronto has won two straight and four of its last five ... The Rangers were 0-for-2 with runners in scoring position and left just three on base ... Mark Buehrle will oppose Robbie Ross in the middle game on Saturday.
