Darvish strong start in Rangers' 14-8 loss to WSox

Yu Darvish struck out two while retiring all six White Sox batters he faced Tuesday in his first spring start before Chicago scored 11 runs over the next two innings in a 14-8 win over the Texas Rangers.

Darvish, the Japanese ace who won 16 games as a major league rookie last season, threw his fastball in the mid-90s.

Nestor Molina and Brian Omogrosso, the first two White Sox pitchers, both had two shutout innings.

Chicago scored six runs in the third off 20-year-old Cody Buckel. The right-hander, the top minor league pitcher in the Rangers organization last year, walked five of the seven batters he faced.

Evan Meek, in Rangers camp on a minor league contract, allowed five runs and five hits and got only two outs in the fourth.
