Yu Darvish threw six strong innings to lift Chicago over the Reds, 6-1, in the series finale Sunday at Great American Ball Park. In doing so, Esa Tikkanen Jersey Darvish earned his first win in a Cubs uniform.
Over 94 pitches (57 Jeff Beukeboom Jersey for strikes), Darvish allowed one earned run on two hits and walked three batters. He tallied seven strikeouts while pitching six innings for just the third time in eight starts this season. Darvish was coming off an outing in Atlanta in which he had left after four innings due to cramping in his right calf.

"I was feeling my fastball, and I was able to throw it in the strike zone because they were being pretty aggressive with their at-bats," Darvish said Don Barclay Jersey through an interpretor.

Darvish got himself into a jam in the home half of the first but managed to escape with just one run allowed. Darvish walked leadoff hitter Alex Blandino, and Joey Votto singled to put runners on first and third with one out. Scooter Gennett was then hit by a pitch to load the bases. After Darvish fanned left fielder Adam Duvall, Scott Schebler knocked in a run with an infield single before catcher Tucker Barnhart popped out to Ian Happ in foul territory.

"My off-speed pitches, as well as my fastball, weren't there during the first inning," Darvish responded. "I'm still changing my mechanics, so there's room to wiggle."

"The difference [with Darvish] was, after the first inning, he really started to gain command of his fastball," said Cubs manager Joe Maddon. "Then the slider becomes even more difficult. If he was in a different spot in the batting order, I probably would have let him go back out for the seventh. … My take on him is when he gets into a rhythm out there, it's almost like he stops thinking and just starts pitching."

Cubs hitters backed up Jaylen Brown Jersey Darvish with three home runs, along with a sacrifice fly and an RBI single.

In the top of the second inning, Kyle Schwarber and Javier Baez hit back-to-back home runs for Chicago, marking the first time Cubs hitters have hit consecutive homers this season.

Ben Zobrist added another run with a leadoff homer in the fifth.<br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br /><br />
