      Cubs' Yu Darvish: Tosses six scoreless

      Yu Darvish threw six shutout innings Friday, allowing just two hits with one walk and eight strikeouts during a no-decision against the Pirates.This was arguably Darvish's best outing of the season, as it was the first time all year he didn't yield a run. Still, he wasn't rewarded with a win because the Chicago Cubs bullpen allowed the Bucs to tie the game in the eighth. Darvish will look to build upon this success, which he hasn't been able to do recently -- he's yielded one run in an outing two times since the end of May, but then followed that up with poor starts. Darvish is 2-4 with a 4.72 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 119 strikeouts in 103 innings this season. He is set to make his next appearance against the Reds on Wednesday.

      Cubs' Yu Darvish: Fans 10 in no-decision

      Yu Darvish didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's 2-1 win over the Dodgers, allowing one run on two hits and a walk over seven innings while striking out 10.The right-hander's only real mistake resulted in an Alex Verdugo solo shot in the fourth inning, but that held up as the only run of the game until Anthony Rizzo played hero with a two-run shot off Kenley Jansen in the ninth. Darvish has been pitching better lately, posting a 2.96 ERA, 0.86 WHIP and 24:7 K:BB through 24.1 innings over his last four trips to the mound, but he still can't seem to generate any real momentum -- he has yet to deliver consecutive quality starts this season. He'll look to break that pattern Friday, at home against the Mets.

      Cubs' Yu Darvish: Gives up four earned in no-decision

      Cubs' Yu Darvish: Whiffs five in no-decision

      Yu Darvish allowed three runs (two earned) on three hits and three walks while striking out five across 5.1 innings Wednesday against the Rockies. He did not factor into the decision.Darvish surrendered only one hit and two walks through five shutout innings. However, he struggled in the sixth frame, allowing three of the first four batters he faced to reach base before getting pulled. Two of his charged runs came after his departure, as the Chicago Cubs bullpen failed to pick him up. Though Darvish threw 65 of his 95 pitches for strikes, he surrendered at least three walks in an outing for the 10th time in 14 starts this season. That said, he's managed to lower his ERA from 5.79 to 4.88 in the last month -- a span of seven starts. He'll look to maintain his improvement in his next scheduled start, a rematch against the Rockies at Coors Field on Monday.

      Cubs' Yu Darvish: Pitches well in no-decision

      Yu Darvish pitched six innings of one-run ball but did not factor into the decision in Friday's 2-1 loss to the Cardinals. He allowed three hits and three walks, while striking out six.This was one of Darvish's best outings of the season, but he still hasn't factored into a decision since grabbing a win on April 27. The Japanese righty has generally not gone far enough into games to pick up wins, though it is encouraging that he's now gone six innings or more in three straight starts. Darvish will carry a 5.02 ERA into his next turn in the rotation, which is slated for Wednesday against the Rockies
