City of San Diego – Yu Darvish took the win Wednesday on a good start, going through seven of six innings of a run as the San Diego Padres held the Los Angeles Angels 8-5.

Darvish said: “I threw comfortably and felt great. “I just let it go my way. My quick ball worked and my change was there too. “
Darvish got plenty of early running support ahead of the visiting Angels, with Padres’ starter Mike Mayers (4-5) and two downs in the eighth round of the second run.
