CLEVELAND -- Michael Bourn homered to lead off the first inning and Justin Masterson took a shutout into the eighth inning, outdueling Texas' Yu Darvish in the Cleveland Indians' 1-0 win over the Rangers on Saturday night.

Masterson (12-7), an American League All-Star, struck out eight and allowed five hits in 7 2/3 innings.

That was enough to beat Darvish (9-5), who struck out 11 and held the Indians to three hits in six innings. Darvish's only mistake came on his second pitch of the game when Bourn hit a line drive that barely cleared the wall in right field.

Chris Perez pitched the ninth for his 14th save. Masterson retired the first two hitters in the eighth but was pulled after Nelson Cruz's two-out single.

Joe Smith retired Adrian Beltre on a line drive to left that was caught on the warning track. The Rangers have lost 11 of 14 and are 2-7 since the All-Star break.
