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.
