  • Padres' Yu Darvish: Strikes out nine in loss

    Darvish (10-6) took the loss against Washington on Saturday, pitching six-plus innings and allowing four runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out nine batters.

    Darvish cruised through five scoreless frames before serving up a pair of sixth-inning homers that resulted in three runs. He came back out for the seventh and allowed a leadoff single to Cesar Hernandez before being pulled. When Hernandez eventually came around to score, Washington took the lead and Darvish was tagged with the loss. Despite the disappointing outcome, it was Darvish's 15th straight start in which he has completed at least six innings. He's posted a 2.93 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 109:16 K:BB over 101.1 innings during that stretch.

  • Padres' Yu Darvish: No help in loss

    Darvish (10-5) took the loss Sunday versus the Dodgers. He allowed two runs on seven hits and struck out five in six innings.

    Both runs against Darvish came in the third inning in the form of a Cody Bellinger solo home run and a Freddie Freeman RBI single. The Padres' offense did Darvish no favors, putting just four runners on base throughout the contest. The right-hander has turned in six straight quality starts, with Sunday's outing being his first loss in that span. He has a 3.28 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 132:26 K:BB through 134.1 innings across 21 starts this season. Darvish is lined up for an enticing road start against the Nationals next weekend.

  • Padres' Yu Darvish: Fans seven in 10th win

    Darvish (10-4) picked up the win in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Rockies, giving up three runs on six hits and two walks over six innings in a 13-5 victory. He struck out seven.

    The game wasn't as much of a laugher for Darvish as the final score suggested, as Colorado grabbed a 3-0 lead before the San Diego offense finally got rolling in the bottom of the fourth. The right-hander threw 71 of 107 pitches for strikes as he delivered his fifth straight quality start and 16th in 20 trips to the mound this season, and he'll take a 3.30 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 127:26 K:BB through 128.1 innings into his next outing.

He exited the game with a one-run lead, though Taylor Rogers blew a save chance in the ninth inning to squander a win for Darvish. Darvish has struck out at least nine batters in five of his last six starts, and he now has a 3.24 ERA and a 120:24 K:BB across 122.1 innings.

    The right-hander took a shutout into the seventh inning before New York finally squeezed across a run. Darvish fired 68 of 99 pitches for strikes before exiting and his splitter was particularly effective, generating a 50 percent swinging strike rate on the night. The quality start was his third in a row and 14th in 18 trips to the mound this season, and Darvish will take a 3.28 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 109:23 K:BB through 115.1 innings into his next outing.

After allowing six homers through his first 14 starts this year, Darvish has given up five long balls in his last three outings. The right-hander still turned in his 13th quality start of the campaign, and he has a 3.41 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 100:22 K:BB through 108.1 innings overall.

  • Padres' Yu Darvish: Little help in no-decision

    Darvish allowed a run on three hits, two walks and a hit batter while striking out six over seven innings, taking a no-decision in Saturday's loss to the Giants.

    Darvish allowed three home runs to the Dodgers in his last start, but he kept the ball in the yard this time around. He limited the Giants to a second-inning sacrifice fly from Brandon Crawford, but the Padres mustered only one run of support. Darvish has now gone a season-high three starts without a win. He owns a 3.38 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 91:20 K:BB across 101.1 innings in 16 starts overall. The right-hander is still sporting a 7-4 record heading into next weekend's projected home start versus the Diamondbacks.

  • Padres' Yu Darvish: Has trouble with long ball

    Darvish (7-4) took the loss Saturday against the Dodgers, allowing five runs on eight hits and no walks with 10 strikeouts in six innings.

    Darvish had a tough first inning, surrendering solo shots to Freddie Freeman, Will Smith and Justin Turner. The Dodgers got to Darvish for runs in the second and third frames as well before the right-hander finished off his start strong by retiring nine of the last 10 batters he faced. While the 10 strikeouts were a season high, Darvish's quality start streak ended at four with the unsteady effort. He has a 3.53 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 85:18 K:BB through 94.1 innings in 15 starts overall, and he's lined up for a home start against the Giants next weekend.

  • Padres' Yu Darvish: Yields one run in win

    Darvish (7-3) allowed a run on four hits, two walks and two hit batters with five strikeouts in seven innings, earning the win Monday over the Diamondbacks.

    Darvish has been locked in lately, winning three straight starts while allowing only two runs over his last 22 innings in that span. Strangely, he's plunked six batters in those games after hitting only two batters in his first 10 outings. The only run against him Monday was on a Christian Walker sacrifice fly in the first inning. Darvish now has a 3.17 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 66:17 K:BB across 82.1 innings overall. He'll look to remain dominant in his next start, tentatively set for this weekend at home versus the Phillies.

  • Padres' Yu Darvish: Fires eight innings in win

    Darvish (6-3) allowed one run on five hits over eight innings Monday, striking out seven and earning a win over the Cubs.

He's yielded just one run on seven hits over his last 15 frames, lowering his season ERA to 3.35 through 75.1 innings. The veteran righty has allowed two or fewer runs in eight of his 12 starts this year. Darvish is lined up to start in Colorado this weekend.

  • Padres' Yu Darvish: Throws seven shutout innings in win

    Darvish (5-3) hit three batters and allowed two hits while striking out six over seven scoreless innings to earn the win over the Mets on Tuesday.

    All three hit batters came in the first two innings, and Darvish carried a no-hitter into the sixth before allowing a single to Mark Canha. This was the fourth time in his last six starts Darvish has gone at least seven innings, though this was arguably his best outing of the season despite the early lack of control. The right-hander now owns a 3.61 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 54:15 K:BB in 67.1 innings across 11 starts this season. He'll look to keep going strong in Chicago versus the Cubs next week.

  • Padres' Yu Darvish: Nearly goes distance Wednesday

    Darvish (4-3) took the loss Wednesday versus the Cardinals. He allowed five runs on seven hits and two walks with four strikeouts in 7.2 innings.

    Darvish was efficient, throwing 68 of 95 pitches for strikes, but he faltered a bit toward the end of the start. Nolan Arenado accounted for most of the damage against the right-hander, tagging him for a two-run home run and an RBI single. Darvish has lost consecutive starts for the first time this year, but Wednesday was his longest appearance of the year. He now has a 4.03 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 48:15 K:BB across 60.1 innings in 10 starts. He'll look to get back in the win column next week at home versus the Mets.

  • Padres' Yu Darvish: Tough loss against Brewers

    Darvish (4-2) took the loss Wednesday as the Padres fell 2-1 to the Brewers, allowing two runs on three hits and two walks over 6.2 innings. He struck out seven.

    The right-hander took a shutout into the seventh inning before stumbling, but the Padres' own troubles scoring runs left Darvish on the hook for the loss. He tossed 108 pitches (68 strikes) en route to his second straight quality start and seventh of the season in nine trips to the mound, and Darvish will take a 3.76 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 44:13 K:BB through 52.2 innings into his next outing.

  • Padres' Yu Darvish: Earns win after seven shutout

    Darvish (4-1) earned the win after allowing zero runs on six hits across seven innings during Thursday's 2-0 win over the Phillies. He struck out five and didn't record a walk.

    Darvish bounced back from a rough outing in his last start to register his third appearance of the season with at least six shutout innings. The right-hander allowed back-to-back singles with one out in the sixth, but that was the most danger he faced all game. His next start is tentatively scheduled for Tuesday's contest against Milwaukee.

  • Padres' Yu Darvish: Escapes with no-decision Friday

    Darvish didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 11-6 win over Atlanta, giving up five runs on nine hits and a walk over 5.2 innings while striking out four.

    The right-hander exited the game after 99 pitches (67 strikes) on the hook for his second loss of the year, but a rally by the Padres in the top of the seventh erased Darvish as the pitcher of record. The outing snapped a streak of four straight quality starts for the 35-year-old, and Darvish will carry a 4.62 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 32:11 K:BB through 39 innings into his next outing.

  • Padres' Yu Darvish: Seven strong frames

    Darvish (3-1) recorded the win during Friday's 3-2 victory over Miami, allowing two runs on five hits with three strikeouts in seven innings.

    Though Darvish didn't have his most dominant stuff, San Diego jumped out to an early 3-0 lead and a Jesus Aguilar home run was the only offense Miami could manage. Aside from a blow-up outing against San Francisco on April 12, the 35-year-old has registered five quality starts totaling 31.2 innings while permitting only six runs. San Diego is currently going with a six-man rotation, so Darvish tentatively lines up to face Atlanta on Friday.
