Yu Darvish’s first World Series appearances were anything but ideal. In fact, they were a complete debacle.

The Los Angeles Dodgers starter was lit up by the Houston Astros before being pulled in the second inning of Game 3 last week and, unfortunately for Darvish and the Dodgers, the exact same situation played out in Game 7 on Wednesday night.

Darvish allowed three hits in 1.2 innings of work, including a two-run home run to the red-hot George Springer, and by the time he got the yank his team was down 5-0.

Brandon Morrow came in to get the final out of the second inning and Clayton Kershaw was on the mound in the top of the third. The Astros held on for a 5-1 victory.

Darvish, acquired in a July trade from the Texans Rangers, finished the World Series with a 21.60 ERA.

Here’s some of the more memorable social media reaction to Darvish’s Game 7 performance. And, yes, there were plenty of GIFs.
