I have no problem admitting that I enjoyed watching Yu Darvish pitch last night. Yankee batters were off balance all game long, chasing 96 mph — sometimes wild — fastballs only to be flummoxed by Bugs Bunny 78 curves, rendering a fine start by Kuroda for naught. The Captain and Cano (nice ring, that.. sounds like a light-hearted crime drama) each doubled and singled but Yu ruled the night.
Phil Hughes has been decidedly mediocre and received a gift win his last start against the Twins. I suppose the highlight of his outing was he lasted for 103 pitches. Scott Feldman gets the rock for the Rangers.
