Ibanez homers off Darvish, Angels beat Rangers
Question of the Day
Ibanez hit a leadoff homer in the second and Chris Iannetta had a long double later in the inning.
Darvish gave up two runs on three hits and a walk in three innings.
Darvish didn’t strike out anyone. He led the AL in strikeouts last season.
“He settled down and made his pitches,” Texas manager Ron Washington said. “We got three innings out of him.”
Sometimes, managers try to hold back pitchers in spring training, rather than have them face division rivals.
The Rangers-Angels game was the only one in spring training Tuesday where Major League Baseball’s expanded replay system was being tested.
There was one call that got reviewed, and the umpire’s ruling was confirmed. J.B. Shuck of the Angels was safe after stealing second with a headfirst slide in the seventh.
The review took 90 seconds.
“It won’t always be that easy,” Texas manager Ron Washington said.
