Pitch of the Night: Yu Darvish baffled Paul Goldschmidt with a devastating slider
Baseball fans have become quite familiar with
Darvish surrendered just one run on two hits with no walks during his five innings of work, striking out seven D-backs in a strong effort. Thanks to his efforts, the Dodgers finished off the sweep with a 3-1 victory.
Perhaps appropriately, Darvish saved his nastiest pitch of the night for the D-backs' best hitter,
That's just a hellacious slider that Goldschmidt could only wave over.
For most players, it might be their best pitch of the year, but it's just another on the long ledger for Darvish.
The Dodgers' next challenge comes up in NLCS Game 1 against either the Nationals or Cubs: Saturday, time TBD on TBS.
