Darvish records 10th double-digit strikeout game of the year

Yu Darvish (HAM) didn't have a great start last night (4 earned runs on 9 hits over 9 innings of work), but he still managed to strikeout 10 batters for his 10th double-digit strikeout game of the year.  And that makes him the first pitcher in Fighters' franchise history to accomplish the feat (and 7th pitcher in the PL to accomplish the feat).

What's more, it seems the Yanks (pro scout Billy Eppler and Damon Oppenheimer), Mets, and Nats had scouts at the game.
