DETROIT (AP) — Yu Darvish pitched two-hit ball into the seventh inning and Mike Napoli homered for the fourth straight game, leading the Texas Rangers to a 10-3 rout of the Detroit Tigers on Thursday night.

The Rangers beat the Tigers in six games in last year’s AL championship series, winning the clincher 15-5. This one wasn’t much closer, with Texas scoring five runs in the eighth and finishing with 19 hits.

Detroit (9-4) has the American League’s second-best record behind the Rangers (11-2).

Darvish (2-0) showed impressive poise in the opener of a four-game set at Comerica Park, allowing one run over 6 1-3 innings in his toughest test since coming over from Japan.

Adam Wilk (0-2) gave up two earned runs and 10 hits in four-plus innings for the Tigers.
