Darvish threw well into enemy territory. In the first inning, when he suddenly took off two sloppy strikeouts and showed the start of a three-way retreat, he struck out four in a row until two dead in the second inning. Although he allowed only one hit with a dead in the fifth inning and the no-hitter was ruled out, it was the only hit he allowed that day.
