Yu Darvish looked Monday like you'd expect a postseason ace to look.

"I think it is coming together," Darvish said through his Japanese interpreter. "Today, I really felt good. I think it's going in a good direction."



For 5 2/3 innings in the Rangers' 8-4 win over the Kansas City Royals, Darvish was perfect. And even when he finally wobbled a bit with two outs in the sixth, manager Ron Washington didn't see anything to worry about.



"Today was his day," Washington said. "He went out there and performed extremely well."
