Dodgers’ Yu Darvish pitches 7 scoreless innings, strikes out 10 in debut against Mets – Orange County Register – California News

NEW YORK — No need to curb your enthusiasm now. As debuts go, that was pretty, pretty, pretty good.

Yu Darvish pitched seven scoreless innings in his debut with the Dodgers, holding the New York Mets to three hits while striking out 10 in a 6-0 victory Friday night.

The shutout was a long way from the 10 runs Darvish allowed in 3-2/3 innings over his final start with the Texas Rangers nine days ago and reversed a recent trend that saw Darvish go 0-5 with a 5.81 ERA over his final eight starts before Monday’s trade from the Rangers to the Dodgers.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said he spoke with Darvish before the game and the right-hander was “just very calm” about making his first start for the Dodgers. But some nerves might have been evident in the first inning.
