ARLINGTON, Texas -- Yu Darvish returned to his dominant form. The star pitcher allowed just four hits over eight sharp innings and the Texas Rangers beat Minnesota 5-0 on Saturday, handing the Twins their fifth straight loss. Darvish (8-4) allowed only one hit and one walk after the second inning in lowering his earned run average to 2.42 following two consecutive defeats and his home ERA to 1.83. With 10 strikeouts, he hit double digits for the fifth in his last eight starts. Adrian Beltre had three hits for the Rangers and scored Texas first run, which proved to be all the Rangers needed, in the second inning. Shin-Soo Chin and Leonys Martin added two hits each. "I thought he was Yu Darvish again," Rangers manager Ron Washington said. "I dont care how good you are. There will be bumps in the road. There will be times when things dont go right. And that even can happen for Yu Darvish. It was good for him to go out there today and find his pitches that worked." Darvish, though, said he was unable to find a comfortable delivery throughout the game. "I just couldnt find the right one today," he said through an interpreter, "but I managed to pitch those eight innings. I cant say I was disappointed." No matter the delivery, Darvish frustrated the Twins with a cut fastball that was particularly effective against lefties. "Id say (Darvishs cutter) is probably his best pitch," said Twins DH Joe Mauer, whose first-inning single extended his hitting streak to a season-high nine games. "He can definitely make the ball move in a lot of different directions." Phil Hughes (8-4) lost for only the second time in eight road starts this season, allowing all five runs on 11 hits in 7 2-3 innings. "Its not been going our way as of late," Twins leftfielder Chris Parmelee said, "but our hitting will come around." Neal Cotts finished for Texas in a non-save situation and retired the side in order. The Rangers have won the first two of the three-game weekend series with the Twins following a season-long eight-game losing streak. The shutout was Texas 14 of the season, tops in the American League and one short of the St. Louis Cardinals major league leading total. Beltre scored on a double by Chris Gimenez on a fly to straight-away centre that sailed just beyond the reach of Sam Fuld. The Rangers added a second run in the third inning when Rougned Odor singled, stole second, advanced on an infield out and scored on a dribbler back to the mound by Elvis Andrus. The Rangers added three insurance runs in the eighth, one on a squeeze bunt by rookie Luis Sardinas. They chased Hughes, who went into the game with a 1.52 ERA in five previous career appearances at Globe Life Park. Darvishs strong outing followed a quality start by Nick Tepesch on Friday night to give Texas consecutive quality starts for the first time since June 14-15. The Twins put runners at second and third in the second inning on singles by Oswaldo Arcia and Parmelee. No. 9 batter Pedro Florimon, hitless in his previous 18 at-bats, flied out to centre with two away to end what proved to be Minnesotas only threat of the game.

Maricopa County spokeswoman Cari Gerchick says thats the finding from an autopsy conducted Thursday by the county Medical Examiners Office.OTTAWA - Clarke MacArthur had a simple explanation with regards to why his Ottawa Senators couldnt claw back against the St. Louis Blues.The Senators trailed by one goal heading into the third period on Saturday and couldnt spark a comeback as the Blues dominated the final 20 minutes to hang on to a 3-2 victory.Theyre making hockey plays and were not, said MacArthur. Were not making good passes. Theyre going tape-to-tape and moving it and we werent, so its tough to get momentum. Its just got to be crisper.Alex Steens second period goal held up as the winner.Maxim Lapierre and Vladimir Tarasenko also scored for the Blues, who improved to 13-6-1, while Brian Elliott stopped 24 shots.It was good for the boys to get the win, said T.J. Oshie. It was good for us to get some goals for our goaltenders as theyve been working hard and playing outstanding all year and we havent been getting them as many goals as of late so it was nice to get (Elliott) the win.Ottawa got goals from Mika Zibanejad and Erik Karlsson as Robin Lehner, making his second consecutive start, stopped 30 shots.Lehner could hardly be faulted for his effort, although the 23-year-old felt he could have been better.First goal is tough when it comes right off the bat and he opened me up, its something Ive got to work on, said Lehner. I think the tip on the third goal too. Its just a reflex to start reaching with your stick to deflect it into the corner and out of the rink and he tipped it back. That stuff bugs me and Ive got to work on it, but I felt like I came back good in the third and had some good saves.The two teams meet again Tuesday in St. Louis for the second and final time this season.Ottawa (9-6-4) made a habit of playing poorly in afternoon games last season, going a dreadful 3-7-2 in games starting before 5 p.m. Eastern— and it seems to have picked up where it left off.When asked about the Senators record in matinee meetings Karlsson made light of the teams struggles.Its just another stat to keep track of, said Karlsson. We havent won a lot of afternoon games, were all aware of it, but its not something we really think about. We can try to do different things, but we try everything we can to win games, but theyre a good team and were going to lose sometimes.Trailing 3-2, the Senators started the third period on a power play, but were unable to capitalize on the opportunity.St. Louis outshot the Senators 15-5, dominated thhe face-off circle and won numerous puck battles in the final 20 minutes.ddddddddddddhey outplayed us in the third period, which was the only thing that would be disappointing in the game, said Senators coach Paul MacLean. I thought we were competitive and played hard against a hard team.The two teams exchanged goals in the second, but it was Lehner and Elliott who stood out.Elliott made a huge glove save on Colin Greening early in the period and minutes later Lehner bailed out Karlsson on a brutal giveaway that led to a Tarasenko point-blank chance.It was the second time in the game that Lehner had to bail out his captain after a giveaway.St. Louis made it a two-goal game at the 12-minute mark as Steen tipped Jay Bouwmeesters shot on the way to the net to beat Lehner.The Senators managed to cut the lead to one on Karlssons power-play goal from the point late in the period.I didnt see it coming through all the bodies, said Elliott, who spent part of four seasons playing for the Senators. Those are tough ones to swallow, especially when youre up 3-1. That goal makes it a tight game. We battled back and kept things to the outside for most of the rest of the game. Obviously when youre not going to the box, that helps as well.Both teams had a solid first 20 minutes, but it was the Blues who went into the break with a 2-1 lead.The Blues opened the scoring on their very first shot of the game as Lapierre got around Cody Ceci and went on to beat Lehner through the legs.Every once in a while I try to create some offense and things like that, said Lapierre. It worked tonight, but it doesnt work every night.Ottawa tied the game on the power play at the 16-minute mark as Bobby Ryan came from behind the net and found Zibanejad in front. But a mere 30 seconds later, St. Louis regained the lead as Jori Lehtera found Tarasenko all alone. Tarasenkos goal was his team-leading 12th of the season.The Senators now head out for a five-game, eight-day road trip starting Monday against Detroit. The Blues head to Winnipeg to take on the Jets on Sunday.Notes: The Senators Chris Phillips was a late scratch. MacLean said Phillips was experiencing discomfort from an issue that bothered him earlier in the week. Marc Methot remains sidelined (back, indefinite). Erik Condra and Curtis Lazar were healthy scratches for Ottawa. The Blues Joakim Lindstrom, Chris Porter and Chris Butler were healthy scratches.
