HOUSTON (AP) - Jon Singleton drove in three runs, and the Houston Astros handled Yu Darvish again in an 8-3 win over the Texas Rangers on Saturday night to stretch the streak against their in-state rival to seven victories in a row.

Darvish (10-7) allowed nine hits and six runs - five earned - in four-plus innings in his second-shortest start of the season. It was his second straight tough outing against the Astros after they tagged him for a season-high 10 hits with six runs in six innings on July 9.

Singleton had an RBI single in Houston's two-run first and added a two-run double as the Astros tacked on four runs in the fifth.

Houston's Scott Feldman (6-8) allowed eight hits and three runs with six strikeouts in 6 1-3 innings.
