ARLINGTON, Texas -- Yu Darvish let out a good yell and pumped both fists before catcher Chris Gimenez greeted him in front of the mound. Air Max 270 Off White For Sale . The Texas ace wasnt necessarily celebrating his first complete game in the major leagues. His battery mate says he does that all the time. "He just kind of looked at me and goes, Yeah! Thats what I said back to him," Gimenez said. "He likes going Yes! all the time. We kind of goof around with each other about it." This was their best reason yet to have a little fun. Darvish struck out 10 in his six-hitter, Shin-Soo Choo broke a long hitless streak with a three-run double and the Rangers denied Miamis bid for a record interleague winning streak, beating the Marlins 6-0 Wednesday night. Darvish (7-2) struck out the side in the eighth to end a streak of one baserunner in each of the first seven innings for the Marlins. The Japanese right-hander wrapped up his 73rd career start by getting Garrett Jones to swing at a pitch in the dirt. Gimenez had to finish it off with a throw to first. The closest Darvish had come to a complete game were the two times he lost a no-hitter with two outs in the ninth inning. The first was a perfect game bid against Houston last year. The other was against Boston a month ago, although a scoring change a few days later altered that. "I wasnt really conscious of throwing a complete game," Darvish said through an translator. "I thought I was going to be out of the game after the eighth inning, but when (manager Ron Washington) told me that Im going in the ninth inning as well, I decided to go. And I also wanted to face (Giancarlo) Stanton again." Darvish gave up his final single to Stanton leading off the ninth, but Casey McGehee grounded into Miamis third double play before Jones whiffed. "I dont think we really have anybody like that," Miami manager Mike Redmond said when asked what NL pitchers compared to Darvish, who was facing the Marlins for the first time. The Marlins had to settle for tying the New York Yankees (2003-04) and Tampa Bay (2004) for the longest interleague winning streak at 13 games. It was Miamis first interleague loss since last Aug. 12 at Kansas City. The Rangers (32-34) snapped a four-game losing streak and avoided falling four games under .500 for the first time since 2008. Texas split the two-game set and is now winless in eight straight series at home. Choo was in an 0-for-18 slump when he pulled a line drive past Jones at first with the bases loaded in the third against Jacob Turner (2-4). When Stanton couldnt cut off the ball in right field, Elvis Andrus scored easily from first for a 3-0 lead. Choo had a single in the fifth that again brought home Andrus, who had three hits. "I needed just one hit, one good hard it," Choo said. "I tell myself every pitch, start over, start over, start over." Darvish, who won his fourth straight start for the first time in Texas, blew a 4-0 lead in his last start against Cleveland but still got the win in a 6-4 Texas victory. There were no such threats this time, and Darvish has allowed one earned run in 37 2-3 innings over his past five interleague starts. Marcell Ozuna helped Darvish by getting thrown out at second base by left fielder Michael Choice after a leadoff single in the seventh. Justin Bour followed with a walk, but Darvish started a double play on J.T. Realmuto to end the inning. Jones had one of the singles on a 59 mph curveball before Darvish struck out Ozuna looking on a knee-buckling slider. Darvish, who threw 116 pitches, got Stanton swinging on another slider in the sixth. Turner finished the fourth inning after getting hit on the right side by a line drive from Rougned Odour, but the right-hander didnt come out for the fifth. He gave up six hits and five earned runs. NOTES: This was the first meeting between the Marlins and Rangers since July 2011. They play two more in Miami on Aug. 19-20. ... The Rangers agreed to terms with top draft pick Luis Ortiz, a high school pitcher from California. The deal for the right-hander includes a $1.75 million signing bonus. He will report to the Arizona League after graduating from high school Saturday.

Im not used to losing. And hopefully, we fix it next year and get back on the right page.Buffalos drought is now tied as the NFLs 10th longest, and worst since the St. Louis/Phoenix/Arizona Cardinals went 15 years between playoff appearances from 1983-97.At least Watkins had a chance to crack a smile Monday. The first-round draft pick spoke while joining fellow rookies on a visit to Buffalos Womens and Childrens Hospital to deliver Christmas gifts and make holiday crafts.It hurts to lose the game, but its very important to wake up and start the day and come here and impact other peoples lives, he said. So I looked forward to just getting out of bed and not looking back on the game. Its over with.The Bills (8-7) are left playing a mean-nothing finale (for them) at AFC East rival New England (12-3) on Sunday.All thats on the line for Buffalo is an opportunity to win its first game at New England since Gillette Stadium opened in 2002, and finish with a winning record for the first time since going 9-7 in 2004.The loss to the Raiders (3-12) was a stunner, and exposed many of Buffalos season-long deficiencies on offence.It just breaks your heart, quarterback Kyle Orton said. It was all there. We just didnt have the execution. And in the end, it cost us.The slow-starting offence managed just 10 points and 145 yards on its firsst 10 possessions. Air Max 270 Black Cheap. It closed by generating two touchdowns and 166 yards on its last four drives in a rally that fell short.That wasnt enough to overcome an uncharacteristically sloppy outing by a usually stingy defence.After not giving up a touchdown pass against Denvers Peyton Manning and Green Bays Aaron Rodgers in its previous two games, Buffalo allowed Raiders rookie Derek Carr to throw two.There really arent any words for how disappointed I am just with myself and the way we played in general, safety Aaron Williams said. We just let it slip away.The offence provided little help.On 13 carries, Buffalo managed 13 yards, the fourth-lowest total in team history.The ground game has sputtered all season in having managed 1,378 yards through 15 games. The Bills low for a 16-game season is 1,552 set in 2006.Coach Doug Marrone blamed the offensive line.They kicked our butt up front, Marrone said. When you do that, its difficult to run, pass and do a lot of things.The loss renewed questions regarding Marrones job security after his second season. The franchise is entering a new era under owners Terry and Kim Pegula, who purchased the team in October.The Pegulas previously expressed a desire to wait until after the season to evaluate the franchise so as not to distract the team.After beating Green Bay last week, Bills President Russ Brandon voiced his support for Marrone by saying the coach has the team on the right path. Following the loss at Oakland, Marrone insisted hes not going anywhere when asked about a report linking him to the vacancy at Michigan.I have nothing to do with that job, Marrone said. Youre stuck with me. Fortunately or unfortunately.___AP Sports Writer Josh Dubow in Oakland, California, contributed to this report.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL ' ' '
