Through four innings, Darvish has allowed one hit and no runs, while striking out four, walking one and throwjng 60 pitches. He's kept Pittsburgh's hitters off-balance by changing speeds effectively. His fastball is sitting at 96 mph, while his slider is at 83 and his slow curve is at 70. Starling Marte struck out on three pitches in the third: a 93-mph fastball, followed by an 81-mph slider and a 95-mph fastball.
