Yu Darvish feels vindicated after beating Dodgers

Yu Darvish

Yu Darvish had some trouble pitching at Dodger Stadium in his brief tenure with the team back in 2017, and the right-hander feels like he was finally able to atone for that with a strong performance on Saturday night.

Darvish allowed just two hits and one earned run in seven innings while leading the Chicago Cubs to a 2-1 win over the Dodgers. After the game, he spoke about how important it was for him to pitch well in LA.

Darvish started Game 7 of the 2017 World Series against the Houston Astros, and he lasted just 1 2/3 innings. He gave up four earned runs and never really gave the Dodgers a chance, and they ended up losing 5-1. While their offense is just as much to blame, Darvish knows he put them in a massive hole.

A strong performance in June is nothing in comparison to Game 7 of the World Series, but the solid game in addition to what Clayton Kersaw said about Darvish should make him feel a lot better.
