It's still possible for Yu Darvish's season to get better.
The Texas Rangers starter fell one batter short of pitching a perfect game against the Houston Astros in his first start of the season.
Astros shortstop Marwin Gonzalez singled up the middle with two outs in the bottom of the ninth, breaking up what would have been the second perfect game in Rangers history.
The 26-year-old right-hander was pulled after allowing the hit. He threw 111 pitches in 8 2/3 innings, striking out 14 batters.
