Pirates 1, Rangers 0
ARLINGTON, Texas — The Pirates clinched their first winning season since 1992 as rookie right-hander Gerrit Cole had a career-high nine strikeouts over seven innings to outpitch Yu Darvish. Pittsburgh (82-61) didn't get a runner to second base against Darvish until Marlon Byrd's two-out double in the seventh. He scored when Pedro Alvarez followed with a double. The Pirates had lost a season-high four in a row since getting their 81st victory Sept. 3 at Milwaukee to guarantee their first non-losing season since ’92.
