Yu Darvish won after allowing nine hits and one walk with eight strikeouts in seven innings against the Yankees Monday.

Darvish improved to 10-6 with a 2.90 ERA over 20 starts on the season. His 167 strikeouts over 133.1 innings ranks third in the American League behind only Rays David Price (183) and Mariners Felix Hernandez (173), but both have pitched at least 55 more innings than him. Darvish's second start of the week will come on Sunday against the Indians.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
