Rapid Reaction: Yankees 2, Rangers 1

NEW YORK -- After a 1-hour, 49-minute rain delay, the game between the Texas Rangers and New York Yankees was called.

Because the game went the required five innings, the Yankees were credited with the 2-1 victory on Wednesday night.

Darvish fails to get 10 wins: Rangers starter Yu Darvish picked up the loss and his record fell to 9-6. He was looking to reach double digits in victories for the third consecutive season. The big blow was a Brett Gardner solo home run in the third inning that gave the Yankees a 2-1 lead. Darvish had some problems with his control. He balked over a runner, threw a wild pitch and was crossed up twice on pitches to catcher Chris Gimenez.

Rangers make a trade: During the rain delay, the Rangers traded closer Joakim Soria to the Detroit Tigers for some prospects. Soria had 17 saves and blew only two games, the most recent coming Tuesday night when he blew his first save in nine attempts.

Rios returns: Right fielder Alex Rios made his return to the lineup after missing the previous three games because of a sprained ankle. Rios, batting third, singled in his first at-bat and was thrown out trying to steal second in the first inning. Rios also flied out to right field.

The only run: The Rangers scored their only run when Rougned Odor hit into a 4-6-3 double play in the third inning for the first run of the game. The inning started when Leonys Martin singled to right center and moved to third on Gimenez's single to right.
