Yu Darvish has not issued a walk in four consecutive starts.
He is the first Cub since at least 1908 with 8+ strikeouts and no walks in four straight starts.
He was also the first Cub to do it in three straight.
Yu Darvish becomes just the 2nd starter ever to have 4 straight starts with 0 BB & 8+ Ks (Samardzija).
Yu Darvish’s last 4 starts.
6 IP, 2 ER, 9 K, 0 BB
5 IP, 1 ER, 8 K, 0 BB
6 IP, 4 ER, 9 K, 0 BB
7 IP, 0 ER, 10 K, 0 BB
That’d be 36 K: 0 BB
Is Yu Darvish our game 1 starter? I think he is.
Yu Darvish tonight: 7 IP, 10 K's, zero walks,
Cubs lead 5-0 Top 8
yu darvish getting the outfields attention like hes in little league before he faces realmuto, who smoked a 102 mph double off him last time up, while hes shoving it down another teams throat, is why I love this guy https://t.co/gFIHIyXt0Q
Yu Darvish's 26 IP without a walk is the longest active streak in the majors and 6th longest (tied) this season.
#Cubs this series vs Phillies
Tonight: Yu Darvish 7 innings, 0 runs, 0 walks, 10 K
Tuesday: José Quintana 6 innings, 2 runs (1 ER), 1 walk, 14 K
Lost 'em both.
The Cubs desperate for a win, Yu Darvish was excellent. Ten strikeouts, zero walks, and complete command of his arsenal. This is the guy Chicago wanted to see.
Harper just launched that so damn far. I have no clue where it went. Then he just sprinted around the bases. Utter disaster for the Cubs. Bullpen gives up 7 runs in the final two frames after a gem from Darvish.
No walks, 6 K's for Darvish through 5. Man, have his walks come down since early on this season.
5-0 Cubs Top 6
Yu Darvish has FOUR STRAIGHT outings with 8+ Ks and 0 BB.
Pitchers on record who have had a longer such streak: ZERO.
' Yu Darvish has had 8+ strikeouts and 0 walks in 4 straight starts.
That ties the longest such streak in the live-ball era - Jeff Samardzija had 4 straight in 2017.
Yu Darvish since July 1:
2 walks issued. 1 walk drawn at the plate (July 30).
Yu Darvish should walk into his media session and immediately should say, "Fuck all of you for kicking my dick off all of last season. Now I'm pitching out of my god damn mind for this team like you all asked and none of you have the balls to crush Jed and Theo like they deserve"
Lifting Darvish for a ph in the 8th when he was at 92 pitches was just the dumbest thing ever. You don’t have a closer or a set up man right now. LET THE GUY PITCH! He’s not a fucking baby.
Darvish: "After the fourth inning I started losing my mechanics. I think it was a good decision.” (to come out of the game)

Oh my lord, Harper just ran around the bases as fast an anyone I can remember. I can't believe the Cubs blew this game.
What a masterful performance by Darvish, RUINED.

A walk off slam just sums up that series. This pen is shocking. 7 innings of class from Darvish for nothing. Strop is just not good enough this year. Could that come back to bite us? #Cubs #EverybodyIn
