...Yu Darvish won his start yesterday against the Chiba Lotte Marines, 10-4, and helped the Fighters crawl out of the last place for the first time since 3/28.  The victory was also Darvish's 70th career win in his 127th game.  That makes him the quickest pitcher to 70 wins -- for pitchers that entered the league out of high school since 1950, Kazumi Saito won 70 in 134 games and Daisuke Matsuzaka won 70 in 136 games.

...As of the end of Saturday, Eiichi Koyano has 24 RBI so far this month -- 17 in his last 7 games.
