Darvish now has double-digit victories against all 5 PL teams

by on Aug.07, 2010 @ 11:35 pm, under NPB

When Yu Darvish got the win against the Rakuten Eagles on Friday night, he not only recorded his 10th victory of the season, but he also recorded his 10th career victory against the Eagles.  And that in turn gave Darvish 10 or more wins against all 5 teams in the Pacific League.

The breakdown:

Orix 14-3

Lotte 11-4

Softbank 13-5

Seibu 12-5

Rakuten 10-5

Darvish also:

Became the third pitcher in franchise history to record 5 straight seasons of 10 or more victories.  The other two: Masayuki Dobashi with 7 seasons between 1958 and 1964; and Yukihiro Nishizaki with 5 seasons between 1987 and 1991.

Recorded his 9th double-digit strikeout game this season, tying career highs he set in 2007 and 2008.

    How about Sugiuchi? I wonder if he had also 2-digit wins against other PL teams since his w-l stats are also good.

      To be honest, I’m not entirely sure. I think the only question would be how many wins he has against the Eagles (since they’re the “newest” team in the league). Based on my calculations, he’s 13-7 against them lifetime. That would mean Sugiuchi most likely has at least 10 wins against each team.
