Yu Darvish's scoreless inning streak came to an end tonight when the Tigers managed to push a runner across the plate in the bottom of the 3rd inning on a wild pitch that allowed Matt Murton (HAN) to score. But Murton may not have been in position to score had Yoshio Itoi cleanly handled Murton's single to center to start the inning.
Murton was also responsible for stopping Darvish's 9-game winning streak with a game-winning RBI single in the bottom of the 7th.
So Darvish's scoreless innings streak ended at 46.2 innings (good for 2nd in PL history) and his consecutive shutout streak ended at 3. But Darvish did toss his 4th straight complete game.
UPDATE 6/16 @ 3:30pm - Scouts from the Atlanta Braves (Hiroyuki Oya, international scout) and Minnesota Twins (Koji Takahashi?) were at the game watching Darvish last night.
Said Oya, "This is the first time I've seen him this year and it looks like he's pushing the fastball. And his slider didn't have as much bite as it did two years ago. But I know he's got more than this."
