Yu Darvish gave up six runs on 10 hits with no walks and eight strikeouts over six innings against the Astros n Wednesday.
Darvish has been somewhat underwhelming over the last month of the season, having now allowed four runs or more in four of his last five starts. The major reason for his recent struggles has been via the walk, as he has surrendered 12 walks over his last five games (30.0 IP) after allowing only 27 over his previous 12 starts. However, he is still sitting on a 8-5 record with a 2.97 ERA and 1.21 WHIP through the first half of the season, so there is still plenty to be happy about up to this point. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
