Yu Darvish seeks his sixth consecutive victory when the Texas Rangers host the Oakland Athletics on Tuesday in the second contest of a three-game set. Darvish looks to join Tampa Bay’s Matt Moore as the only major-league hurlers with eight victories. Oakland won Monday’s opener 9-2 to move within 5 1/2 games of the first-place Rangers in the American League West. The Athletics have won four straight games while Texas has won nine of its last 12 contests.
