Yu Darvish pitched seven shutout innings while striking out 10 in the Cubs’ 7-5 loss to the Phillies.

Fantasy Impact:

It’s been an uneven year to say the least for Darvish, but he pitched well enough to earn the victory, striking out 10 Phillies in seven shutout innings. Though the bullpen was unable to preserve the lead, Darvish flashed signs of the dominance that was so characteristic of his career in Texas. He’ll look to build on this strong performance moving forward.
