ARLINGTON, Texas -- Yu Darvish's next start comes Saturday against the Angels in Anaheim. And once again, he'll be opposed by C.J. Wilson.

The two tangled in Arlington, though Mother Nature ruined a true duel. When rain came in the first inning -- with the Rangers all over the bases already -- the night ended for Wilson. Darvish returned to the field after staying warm during the nearly two-hour delay and pitched well, holding the Angels to three runs in 5 1/3 innings with three walks and seven strikeouts. He threw 93 pitches and earned the respect of his teammates by grinding it out through the rough weather.

Wilson came back the next day and got a no-decision in the Angels' win, allowing just two runs on five hits in 5 2/3 innings.

Now we get to see the two again, this time in California.
