Darvish, pen help Rangers beat Rays 3-1 to gain home field

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) Seven days after the Texas Rangers clinched their second straight American League West title, they took another significant step toward their ultimate goal.

Yu Darvish looked playoff-ready with a season-high 12 strikeouts in six innings as the Rangers beat the Tampa Bay Rays 3-1 on Friday night and clinched home-field advantage throughout the postseason.

The Rangers can be tied by the Boston Red Sox and Cleveland Indians, and they own tie-breakers over both teams. The AL owns home-field advantage in the World Series thanks to its win in the All-Star Game.
