Yu Darvish gave up one run, five hits, three walks and punched out 12 over 6.2 innings in the 5-1 win over the Blue Jays Friday night.
The win was his first in three starts as he improved to 9-5 on the season. The 12 strikeouts tied his season high and was the 26th time in his career, sixth this season, that he registered 10 or more strikeouts in a game. Darvish's next start will be on Wednesday in New York against the Yankees.rnrnANALYST: Michael Pichan
