by on Apr.03, 2009 @ 11:19 am, under NPB

After seeing Mike's breakdown on Darvish's start during the WBC, I thought I might try my hand at doing something similar, but over the course of an entire season.

Here are the results from Yu Darvish's last start against the Rakuten Eagles on April 3, 2009 @ Sapporo Dome.

1st Inning

2nd Inning

3rd Inning

4th Inning

5th Inning

6th Inning

7th Inning

8th Inning

9th Inning

Entire Game

His final line for the night:

9.0 IP, 35 BF, 121 NP, 8 H, 1 HR, 5 K, 0 BB, 3 R, 3 ER

Darvish topped out at 150km/h (~93.2mph) twice and hit 149km/h (~92.6mph) on his 120th pitch.

    Thanks for compiling this info, Gen. I think it will be great to track as the season goes along.

    Thanks. Hopefully I’ll be able to keep it up over the course of an entire season.

    If I have extra time, I’d also like to try and do this for Masahiro Tanaka.
