Welcome to The Daily Yam, bringing you Yesterday’s Awesome Moment and what to look forward to today. Last night, the Rangers’ Yu Darvish pitched out of his mind, striking out 14 Diamondbacks over just 7 innings. Interestingly, he seemed to do it in two waves — the first half was mostly swinging strikeouts, the second half mostly looking.

It’s not like dominating the D-Backs should be worth a trophy, but 14 strikeouts against MLB professionals is still 14 strikeouts against… MLB professionals.
That tied a career high for Darvish, and, not surprisingly, the Rangers cruised 7-1.
