Nippon Ham Fighters: May 22, 2010

by on May.22, 2010 @ 3:20 pm, under NPB

...Yu Darvish's consecutive scoreless inning streak came to an end at 31 innings on Friday, falling just 4 short of the club record of 35 (set by Yasuo Yonekawa in 1954).  It was Darvish's first start on 5 days of rest this year.

Incidentally, Darvish is now 4-3 on the year with a 1.48 ERA over 10 starts.  During games in which Darvish has lost, the Fighters have scored a collective 4 runs.  In the three no decisions: 4 runs.  And in the four games Darvish won: 27 runs.  It should be noted that the 27 runs is a bit skewed because there was a game where the offense scored 12 runs.  In either case, it's been something of a Jekyll and Hyde offense for Darvish.
