DARVISH DOMINATES IN FIRST GAME WITH L.A.
YORK» Yu Darvish fit right in with the NEW steamrolling Dodgers, striking out 10 over seven innings of three-hit ball during his Los Angeles debut to pitch the top team in the majors past the Mets 6-0 Friday night.
Chris Taylor hit a leadoff homer against Jacob de Grom, and Mets nemesis Chase Utley added a two-run shot as Los Angeles improved baseball’s best record to 77-32 with its 11th victory in 12 games. Yasiel Puig also went deep for the Dodgers, who have outscored New York 42-11 in winning all five meetings this season.
In his first start since being acquired from Texas for three prospects just before Monday’s trade deadline, Darvish (1-0) only made the Dodgers look even better. With his confident teammates behind him, the four-time all-star snapped a fivegame losing streak.
