Darvish, who was able to break the record for the most strikeouts in a Japanese big leaguer held by his mother by adding only 6 strikeouts in the game, broke the record with exactly 6 strikeouts.
In the 6th inning, the first batter, Ryan Mountcastle, was struck out with a swinging miss, and in the following situation with no runners in the second runner, he struck out Ramon Uriahs again with a swinging miss, and this strikeout became a new history.
Darvish broke the record set by Nomo by pitching 323 games, 1976 1/3 innings in 12 seasons in the major leagues, in 11 seasons, 264 games, 1615 1/3 innings.
Darvish added meaning by setting this record while his mother, the previous record holder, watched the game directly.
Darvish, however, came down the mound with the team trailing 1-4 and was on the brink of defeat.
After allowing a solo home run to Ryan O’Heon in the second inning, he allowed an extra run to Gunna Henderson in the fifth inning with one out and bases loaded, allowing a double that wiped out a runner in left field.
